    [03] President Clerides - US President - Letter

    Nicosia, Oct 17 (CNA) -- US President Bush has expressed gratitude to the people of Cyprus for their solidarity in the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

    Bush said he looks forward to working with President Glafcos Clerides to uproot terrorism and notes that he draws strength and determination from the support of the people of Cyprus and President Clerides.

    "On behalf of the American people, I am grateful to you and the people of Cyprus for your kind expressions of condolences and concern in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001," Bush said in his letter, dated 28 of September.

    These savage deeds were attacks against freedom and serve as a warning to all civilized people, he added.

    The letter, delivered to the President by US Ambassador in Nicosia Donald Bandler on 11 October, said "freedom was attacked but freedom will be defended."

    Bush points out that "the values and determinations of our peoples are crucial to rooting out terrorism across the globe."

    "I look forward to working with you to meet this difficult challenge. The struggle may be a long one, but we draw strength and resolve from your solidarity and support," Bush concludes.

    Cyprus has aligned itself with those countries fighting terrorism and has placed its air space and airports at the disposal of the US in the worldwide effort to uproot terrorism.
