Saudi Arabia should be held accountable for the role it “played in murdering nearly 3,000 people” in the 9/11 attacks, the widow of one victim told RT. She wrote a letter to Donald Trump, calling on him to support the “quest for justice” during his visit to Riyadh.

“Since the president was going over to Saudi Arabia and they are named in our lawsuit, I was prompted to write this letter to ask him to please not forget about 9/11 families,” Terry Strada, national chair of the 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism, told RT.

Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, becoming the first US president to choose a Muslim-majority country for his first overseas visit.

“We are just asking for our government to support us in our quest for justice against the murder, against Saudi Arabia for the role they played in murdering nearly 3,000 people,” said Strada who represents some 10,000 family members of those who were killed during the September 11, 2001 attacks.

According to Strada, it’s time “we have some accountability for this atrocious act that happened here [in the US] on 9/11.”

“It’s time that the Saudis stop pretending like they didn’t have any part of it and come to the table and discuss settlement for the families or our lawsuit will pursue in the courtroom.”

The letter which Strada wrote to Trump, dated May 12, was initially published by Breitbart News Network. It states that families of 9/11 victims call for “justice against terrorism.”
