6th Commemoration of the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute
to the Victims of Terrorism
Today marks the 6th Commemoration of the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism. The United States stands with the global community of victims, families, survivors, and communities who have been impacted by the scourge of terrorism.
The effects of terrorism are long-lasting and tragic. Victims of terrorism, should be kept at the forefront of efforts to provide them with the justice, support, and protection they deserve. The United States and its international partners have made great strides in detecting and disrupting terrorist attacks, diminishing terrorist recruitment, and denying terrorists support. We are committed to preventing future attacks and to hold terrorists to account for their crimes.
We pay solemn tribute to those who lost their lives in terrorist attacks, and we will never forget the victims of terrorism or stop our pursuit of justice and peace.
