PacNet #1 – Terrorism: Southeast Asia’s Response

Southeast Asian nations recoiled with horror at the brutal nature of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. This horror swiftly turned to sympathy and grief for the victims of the massive tragedy. Then followed the condemnation, as universal as it was unconditional. This overwhelming feeling of sympathy and support for the United States also resulted in all Southeast Asian governments joining, each in their own way, the global campaign against terrorism mobilized by the United States. All supported UN Security Council Resolution 1368 of Sept. 12, 2001 and Resolution 1373 of Sept. 28.
