President Abdelaziz Bouteflika
September 11, 2001
To His Excellency Georges W. Bush
President of United States of America
Together with all the Algerian people, I was horrified by the news concerning
the cruel and barbaric attacks of which the American people was the victim it
both its capitals of New York and Washington.
Algeria condemns with the greatest energy these acts of violence which bear
the revolting hallmark of blind terrorism which targets all parts of the world,
and which, in the acts that just targeted your great country demonstrated its
capacity to harm and the danger to which it exposes humanity.
In these terrible and tragic circumstances, I wish to express to you personally
and to the whole of the American people, my sympathy and that of the Algerian
people which shares the pain of the families striken by this atrocious unleashing
of such abject violence and of such cowardice.
Please accept, Mr. President, the assurance of my highest consideration.
