On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attack in New York, a photo exhibition dedicated to this tragedy was opened at the I. Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University. This is reported on the university's Facebook page.

The Minister of Education and Science of Georgia Mikhail Chkhenkeli made a speech at the official event.

"20 years have passed since the terrible tragedy of September 11, which occurred in New York. It was not only a tragedy of the United States, it was a tragedy of the whole world. It also affected me personally, when I was in the United States. On September 11, my American student was in one of the buildings, and he died. I offer my condolences to the families of the victims, the American people and all of humanity," Chkhenkeli said.

In addition to the photo exhibition, the September 11 memorial – the "Artifact of the World Trade Center" - is displayed in the TSU administrative building.

"For me, as a citizen of Georgia and America, it is a joy that this memorial is displayed in Georgia for the first time. It is very important that the memorial will be exhibited at various universities of Georgia, including regional ones. Our youth, students and all interested persons will be able to see this memorial and photo exhibition, " Chkhenkeli said.

The owners of the memorial are US citizens Paul and Chauncey Rodzianko. The main element of the sculpture is a fragment of a metal support, a piece of steel extracted on the territory of the World Trade Center. It retains the name and inventory number of Laclede Steel, a leading steel manufacturer in St. Louis. At the initiative of the Ministry of Culture and the Rodzianko Family, the sculpture was first exhibited in Georgia on the anniversary of the tragedy.

A group of 19 terrorists hijacked four passenger planes in the United States on September 11, 2001, two of which subsequently crashed into the high-rise towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another rammed the Pentagon building near the American capital, and the fourth fell near the city of Shanksville in Pennsylvania after passengers and crew tried to neutralize the terrorists.

More than 2.9 thousand people were killed in the terrorist attacks, the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization claimed responsibility for them.
