My colleagues and I are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that Mr. Nils Göran David Malmqvist has passed away. I would like to express sincere sympathy to you, and deep condolences to the loss of Mr. Malmqvist.

Mr. Malmqvist had been close to the Chinese people all his life. As a world-renowned sinologist, writer and translator, he loved China and was devoted to the study of Chinese history and culture. He is an old, good friend of the Chinese people, an cultural envoy and a bridge of friendship between China and Sweden, and had made outstanding contributions to promoting cultural and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries. Mr. Malmqvist will live forever in the hearts of the Chinese people.

My condolences.
