French President Jacques Chirac sent the White House a message of solidarity before commemorations marking the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and he vowed continuing support for the fight against terrorism. In Sunday's message to US President George W. Bush, Chirac wrote: "During these days of sad commemoration, I want to express the friendship and solidarity of the French people with the American people." "Together, we pay homage to all the victims of terrorism in the world," Chirac wrote. "Together, we pursue our determined struggle against this blight that nothing can ever justify." The letter in French was addressed "Monsieur le President." Next to that formal opening, Chirac hand-wrote another address: "Dear George."
