I thank Bulgaria for being America's steadfast partner

Date: 11.09.2006

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, in which thousands of innocent people - including citizens from 90 countries - lost their lives. We have just held a commemorative service here to honor their memory and sacrifice. I think it is especially poignant that we hold this ceremony in the Sveta Nedelya Church, which was the site of one of the most deadly terrorist attacks of the Twentieth Century. No cause or political agenda can justify terrorism and the murder of innocent people - not in 1925 in Sofia, and not in this new century in places like New York, or Madrid, Bali, London, Amman or Beslan, or Baghdad.

Bulgarians know this through your own history and through your own sense of character and decency. I've been reminded of this by the many Bulgarians who have taken time to recall the tragedy of September 11, and express their solidarity in our common struggle against terrorism. I would like to thank Bulgaria for being America's steadfast partner in this fight. Americans and Bulgarians value every human life, and believe that all people equally deserve respect, dignity, freedom, and justice. These are the values we share, and I see every day how they strengthen our cooperation to build a safer and more stable world free from the fear of terrorism.
