A tribute was held at the site of the September 11 attacks in New York on Monday in a show of support to France and a response to the suicide bombings and shootings that killed at least 129 people in Paris.

"The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum stands in absolute solidarity with France, just as the French people stood united with us in support of our city and country when we needed it the most," said Joe Daniels the President of the 9/11 Memorial.

"In darkness we do shine brightest and together, together, we will find strength and healing."

The gathering observed a moment of silence then played the French national anthem.

"We know that as much as the solidarity of Paris with New York was immense on the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks we know that the same solidarity is in the hearts, minds and souls of every New Yorker and for that we will never forget," said Consul General of France Bertrand Lortholary.

"This place is a place of remembrance, remembrance of the horror that took place 14 years ago. But that very place is also a place of hope. New York City rebuilt itself. New York City showed us an example of resolve. Thank you New York. Long live the French-American friendship. Vive le États Unis. Vive le France. (Long live the United States. Long live France.)."

Flowers in blue, white and red were placed at the foot of the Survivor Tree near the 9/11Memorial during the ceremony.
