Dear Mr. Guiliani,
Shocked to learn of the disastrous in the city of New York on September 11th , 2001, causing devastating casualties, I would like, as the Mayor of the sister city of New York, and on behalf of Beijing Municipal Government and all Beijing's citizens, to express my deep sympathy to you and people of New York, and condolence to the family members of the victims.
We are deeply astounded by the attack and strongly condemn the horrifying terrorist violence.
We are closely following the rescue work, and would like to provide necessary assistance in this regard. I am convinced that the citizens of New York will tackle the present difficulties and resume normal social and working order in a short period of time.
