SYRIA CONDEMNS ATTACKS

Syrian Ambassador Rustom Zoubi yesterday condemned the "ugly and horrible" attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and promised Syria's help to "root out terrorism in all its forms."

Mr. Zoubi told Embassy Row that Syria "expresses its condolences [to the victims and their relatives] and strong denunciation" of the attacks.

"We also express our profound sympathy for the loss of life . . . from these ugly and horrible attacks," he said.

"Syria has nothing to do with terrorism," he said. "We are a civilized country. We call on all countries to be united in the fight against terrorism.

"Anyone or any group that is behind these actions should be brought to justice."

Russian Ambassador Yury V. Ushakov yesterday denounced the terrorist assault as attacks "directed against not only America, but also all of modern civilization."

Expressing his "deep sympathy for the Americans who have suffered in this horrible tragedy," he noted that Russia has "also experienced the evil of terrorism in recent years. …
