“In our world today, where the environment is under threat, where the human values that are key to any policy are too often ignored or are called into question, the messages contained in Prince Albert I’s pioneering work have, more than ever before, something critical to teach us,” said Prince Albert II.

I learned with horror of the terrorist attacks affecting your country and of which there are numerous victims, some cut down in their youth.
My thoughts go out, in sadness and dismay, to the families of the missing people as well as those injured and taken hostage.
I fervently hope that the peoples of the Mediterranean basin can unite around the values of peace, justice and respect, so that they can keep these barbaric acts in check.
I assure you and the Israeli people of our support and compassion in this cruel ordeal.
