I am deeply saddened by the passing of Senator John McCain.
His military service and decades as a leading Member of Congress set an unparalleled standard for valor, integrity and devotion to the public good.
Senator McCain recognized the enormous benefits of Europe's peaceful rebirth after 1945, and the crucial investment in that effort by successive U.S. administrations. He supported ever stronger transatlantic cooperation built on that shared legacy. We must all try to follow his example in strengthening EU-U.S. ties and dealing with the challenges ahead.
On behalf of the European Union, I extend my deepest condolences to Mrs. Cindy McCain and the McCain family.
