The US ambassador to Serbia Kyle Scott said on Wednesday that the fight against terrorism needed constant commitment and that Washington considered Belgrade a partner in that struggle, the Beta news agency reported.
Speaking on the occasion of the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York, Washington and Pentagon which killed some 3,000 people, Scott told the state RTS TV that everyone knew the 9/11 2001 tragedy had changed the entire world and the perception of terrorism forever.
“We all knew, even subconsciously, that that day changed the world and that the fight against terrorism was not something exotic happening in the Middle East or southern Asia, but on our doorsteps as well,” the ambassador said.
He recalled that “unfortunately, the images of New York were seen in Paris, London, Brussels...”
The US embassy commemorates the 9/11 attack by donating blood in cooperation with Serbia’s Red Cross for the ninth year in a row.
