EU: Statement On The Tenth Anniversary Of The 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

Posted by Info on 11/09/2011

by Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Thorbjørn Jagland
Chairman of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, Kostyantyn Gryshchenko
President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Mevlüt Çavusoglu

On this day of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks we first and foremost pay tribute to the victims and their families.
This tragic date of mourning should serve as a reminder that terrorism has no ideology, no nationality and no religion. Terrorism in all its forms is a violation of the most fundamental human right: the right to life. Regardless of where, by whom and against whom terrorist offences are perpetrated, these crimes affect us all and target humanity as a whole.

The purpose of terrorism is to induce fear and to create divisions. Our response must be based on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Terrorists are set to destroy these fundamental values and by protecting them, we make terrorists fail.

Recalling the relevant Council of Europe instruments, in particular its Conventions to prevent and combat terrorism, we reiterate our firm determination to continue fighting international terrorism, through strengthening the international legal framework, addressing the causes of terrorism and safeguarding the respect for fundamental values shared by the member states of the Council of Europe.

US Marks 10th Anniversary Of 9/11 Attacks On New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

Posted by Info on 11/09/2011

New York’s National September 11 Memorial, to be unveiled later on Sunday, features two reflecting pools, each almost an acre in size, in the footprints of twin towers. The names of those who died on 9/11, as well as the six people killed in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, are inscribed on the edge of the pools.

BBC North America editor Mark Mardell: “When I first started asking Americans about how 9/11 had changed their country, I was surprised. I had been expecting something about the wars, or other philosophical reflections. Instead they talked about queues at airports. It has become a new way of a life in the last 10 years with all the security measures.”
