Press Statement
MEETING IN EXTRAORDINARY SESSION OF THE NATO-RUSSIA PERMANENT JOINT
COUNCIL AT AMBASSADORIAL LEVEL
The NATO-Russia Permanent Joint Council, meeting in extraordinary
session at Ambassadorial level on 13 September 2001, expressed its
anger and indignation at the barbaric acts committed against the
people of the United States of America. The deepest sympathies of
Allies and Russia lie with the victims and their families. While
Allies and Russia have suffered from terrorist attacks against
civilians, the horrific scale of the attacks of 11 September is
without precedent in modern history. NATO and Russia are united in
their resolve not to let those responsible for such an inhuman act to
go unpunished. NATO and Russia call on the entire international
community to unite in the struggle against terrorism.
NATO and Russia will intensify their cooperation under the Founding
Act to defeat this scourge.
