Nicosia, Dec 11 (CNA) -- Cyprus will not allow terrorism to destroy civilisations nor will it allow it to lead to conflicts between civilisations, President Glafcos Clerides stressed here today during a ceremony at the US Embassy in memory of the victims of the terrorist attack against the US, that took place exactly three months ago.

During the ceremony, President Clerides and US Ambassador to Cyprus Donald Bandler laid a wreath at the US flag that was flying half-mast and observed a moment of silence in the memory of those killed during the attack.|

President Clerides also expressed his sorrow that "in these days of Christmas that we all want to spend with our families," young children, wives and husbands have been killed in the barbaric action of September 11.

Ambassador Bandler thanked President Clerides for his continuing support and for taking all necessary measures and initiatives needed to make the global antiterrorism effort a success.

"He (President Clerides) has worked tirelessly to ensure that Cyprus would become a valuable partner in the effort to build a future free of these destructive threats", Bandler noted.
