On behalf of the American people, I am grateful to you and the people of Cyprus for your kind expressions of condolence and concern in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. These savage deeds were attacks against freedom and serve as a warning to all civilized people.
Freedom was attacked, but freedom will be defended. 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".
