Press Statement

Secretary of State
Washington, DC
March 29, 2010


Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this morning's bombings in Moscow, their families, and all the people of Russia. This brutal assault on innocent civilians is another reminder that terrorism is a threat to peace-loving people everywhere and must be met with unwavering resolve. I will offer my personal condolences to Foreign Minister Lavrov later today in Ottawa. Together with our G8 partners, we will discuss how to further strengthen international counterterrorism coordination and cooperation. I was in Moscow earlier this month, and I know the resilience and determination of the Russian people. The United States stands with them today and everyday in solidarity against violent extremism in all its forms.
