Re­ac­tion from around the world

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - GEORGE H.W. BUSH: 1924-2018 -

“His wise lead­er­ship at the end of the Cold War helped steer the world to a peace­ful tran­si­tion and the spread of democ­racy. The peo­ple of Is­rael will al­ways re­mem­ber his com­mit­ment to Is­rael’s se­cu­rity, his im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tion to the lib­er­a­tion of So­viet Jewry, and his ef­forts to achieve peace in the Mid­dle East at the Madrid Con­fer­ence.”

Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu, prime min­is­ter of Is­rael

“Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush’s ethos of pub­lic ser­vice was the guid­ing thread of his life and an ex­am­ple to us all. It took him from ser­vice in World War II, to his stew­ard­ship of the CIA and his di­rec­tion of the Gulf War as Com­man­der-in-Chief. And in nav­i­gat­ing a peace­ful end to the Cold War he made the world a safer place for gen­er­a­tions to come.”

Theresa May, prime min­is­ter of Great Bri­tain

“Pres­i­dent Bush was a ded­i­cated and thought­ful leader who stuck by his con­vic­tions and val­ues. … As pres­i­dent, he pro­vided steady, prin­ci­pled lead­er­ship through a num­ber of de­ci­sive in­ter­na­tional events.”

Justin Trudeau, prime min­is­ter of Canada

“Pres­i­dent Bush ded­i­cated him­self to world peace and se­cu­rity by tak­ing a lead­ing role in end­ing the Cold War and rec­on­cil­ing the West and East, and made no­ble en­deav­ors to bring peace on the Korean Penin­sula and strengthen the ROK-US al­liance. Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H. W. Bush will be long re­mem­bered in the hearts of the Korean peo­ple.”

Moon Jae-in, pres­i­dent of South Ko­rea
