Statements by the HR/VP

Former US President George H. W. Bush was one of the statesmen to have made the United States more than just an ally in the world: a point of reference, a friend.

He will be remembered for the key role he played in international affairs, helping to end the Cold War, reducing the nuclear threat in Europe, and contributing to forge a rules based system.

My thoughts are with his family, friends and the people of the United States.
