US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday drew a comparison between the Mumbai terror attacks and 9/11 attacks in the US.
In the message written by her Memorial Tribute at Taj Hotel in Mumbai she said people of both the countries can be "grateful and proud" of the heroism of the brave men and women whose courage saved lives and prevented greater harm on 26/11 and 9/11.
Following is the text of her message:
"Americans share a solidarity with this city and nation. Both our people have experienced the senseless and searing effects of violent extremism. And both can be grateful and proud of the heroism of brave men and women whose courage saved lives and prevented greater harm on 26/11 and 9/11.
"Now it is up to all nations and people who seek peace and progress to work together. Let us rid the world of hatred and extremism that produces such nihilistic violence. Our future deserves no less."
