Condolences pour in over death of Queen Elizabeth II

Condolences continued to pour in on Friday from across the world after the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida called the queen's death a "great loss not only to the British people but also to the international community."

"Japan’s thoughts are with the United Kingdom as the British people overcome this deepest sadness," he said.

China's President Xi Jinping extended "sincere sympathy" to the British royal family, government, and its people.

The queen, who was the first British monarch to visit China in 1986, had "won wide acclaim," said Xi, terming her death "a great loss to the British people."

Expressing “profound sadness” on the death of the British monarch, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said the “world has lost a true figure of majesty.”

“She exemplified to the world a true monarch's great dignity, commitment to duty, and devotion to all those in her realm,” Marcos added.

Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen said the self-ruled island nation "remembers and celebrates" the late queen's "life of leadership and service, which set an example for people around the world."
