Budapest, September 11 (MTI) – Hungarian President Janos Ader sent a letter to United States President Barack Obama on Friday to “express my deepest sympathy over the tragic events” of 9/11 “on behalf of the people of Hungary”.
“Our thoughts are still with the families and friends of the thousands who lost their lives in the atrocious attacks and with the many more who were injured,” the letter reads.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our country’s commitment to cooperating with our allies and partners so as to uphold the values upon which the trans-Atlantic community has been based,” it said.
Ader said Hungary “remains dedicated” to promoting an international environment to face current challenges such as the fight against Islamic State and the “struggle against the spread of violent and intolerant extremism, be it religiously, ethnically or racially motivated.”
The president referred to the “adverse effects that environmental degradation and climate change can have upon the lives of hundreds of millions all over the world, pushing many of them to poverty and despair.” Hungary, he said, is “keen to cooperate” with the US in environmental protection.
