2004 Public Statement
06/13/2004 Saudi Ambassador condemns attacks on Americans in Saudi Arabia and extends condolences to families of victims Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan issued the following statement as a press release in Washington DC today:
“The attacks on Americans living in Saudi Arabia are craven acts of evil. The actions of the terrorists represent the misguided nature of the few people who want to stop the movement toward progress and modernity in the Kingdom. Their intention is to shake our will, to frighten away our friends and allies, and to undermine our society. We are at war with these terrorists and with their ideology of hate. And we will succeed.
“I want to express my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. There is no justification for these brutal acts -- no justification whatsoever. We will continue to do all that we can to provide security for all people living in Saudi Arabia and, God willing, we will uproot the terrorists wherever they may hide.”
