After the Twin Tower attack, where many people have spend their last moments, we can say that the whole world started fighting against terrorism. Through those actions, the Republic of Moldova wishes to show that it is with the USA, we still remember and mourn those who have fallen there. We appreciate everything the United States has done for Moldova, including in terms of security and fight against terrorism", Andrian Candu declared.
In his turn, the United States Ambassador to Moldova, James Pettit, stated that the fight against terrorist is an ongoing one and the whole world needs to join forces against it, including the Republic of Moldova.
"It is a sad day for the USA, we still mourn those who have deceased. Unfortunately, our country is at was. One that I fear, has no end. Therefore it is an honor, when a high ranking official, such as Andrian Candu, shows his respect. It is very important that all our allies unite in this fight, including the Republic of Moldova", James Pettit said.

The plane, overtaken by terrorists, was going at 790 km/h and collided with the building, destroying 6 floors.
The massacre was caused by Al-Qaida terrorist group, lead by Osama bin Laden. Its leaders were captured and killed only ten years after, in 2011.
