Paying tributes to the martyrs of the 26/11 terror strike, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today said nations and people who seek peace and progress should work together and rid the world of hatred and extremism that produce violence.

Americans share solidarity with this city (Mumbai) and nation (India), Clinton wrote in the 26/11 Memorial Book, while paying tributes to the martyrs of the terror strikes which left 183 dead in the city.

"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," the top American diplomat wrote.

"Let us rid the world of hatred and extremism that produces such nihilistic violence," she said.

"Our future deserves no less."
Clinton is the senior-most American official to visit India after Barack Obama took over as US President early this year.
