Michael Douglas Offers Condolences to Victims of Japan Disaster
United Nations Messenger of Peace Michael Douglas has expressed his condolences to the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster. An estimated 18,000 people lost their lives in the double disaster which struck Japan on March 11.
The "Wall Street" legend, who recently overcame a battle with cancer, joined U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the United Nations headquarters in New York on Thursday, March 24 and offered his heartfelt thoughts to those affected by the tragedies.
Douglas' appearance coincided with the launch of a new exhibit of petitions calling on world leaders to ban the use of nuclear weapons as a result of Japan's nuclear crisis following the Asian disasters. He said, "Our hearts go out to the Japanese people as they deal with this catastrophe. The Japanese have a history of rebuilding their country after natural and man-made catastrophes."
