Krintenbrink reportedly expressed hope that the two leaders will be able to interact with the survivors. He was also quoted as saying: “This event is both a demonstration of the strength of our alliance and also a powerful demonstration of how two countries can overcome a very painful history to become the closest of allies and friends.”
