Statement by the NATO Secretary General on the Benghazi attack
Independent Films, Documentaries, Politics
I strongly condemn the attack on the US mission in Benghazi which led to the tragic loss of four Americans, including the Ambassador. Such violence can never be justified. I offer my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives and my thoughts are with those who are injured.
I welcome the Libyan President’s condemnation and condolences and his pledge of his government’s full cooperation. It is important that the new Libya continues to move towards a peaceful, secure and democratic future.
