European Leaders Pay Tribute to Late US President George HW Bush

MADRID – European leaders paid tribute on Saturday to the late former president of the United States George H.W. Bush, who died a day earlier at the age of 94.

French President Emmanuel Macron sent condolences to the people of the US and offered sympathy for the late leader’s family and loved ones.

“(Bush) was a world leader, who strongly supported the alliance with Europe,” Macron said in a statement via Twitter.

German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert praised the late president as a friend of the German people and noted his contribution to Germany’s reunification, which occurred during Bush’s term as president.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also hailed Bush and his efforts to end the Cold War, adding that the late leader was “a great statesman and a friend of Germany.”

Spain’s former prime minister Jose Maria Aznar also conveyed his condolences to the family of the former US president, noting that Bush had left a historical legacy worthy of being recognized.

Aznar said on Facebook that he had maintained an excellent relationship with Bush and that their conversations and meetings remained a fond memory.

Bush died on Friday, eight months after the death of his spouse, former First Lady Barbara Bush, to whom he was married for 73 years.

The late leader served as fighter pilot during World War II, a congressman, ambassador to the United Nations, CIA director and vice president under Ronald Regan between 1981-1989, before concluding his four-decade political career by serving as US president from 1989-1993.

Bush’s son, George W., was elected to the presidency in 2000 and served two terms.
