Pakistan condoles death of ex-US President H.W. Bush

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office of Pakistan on Saturday offered condolences on the death of former US President George H.W Bush.

Dr Muhammad Faisal, the FO spokesperson, in a tweet said: “Grieved at passing away of President H.W. Bush. Share pain of family and American people.”

“He was a statesman who led his country amid difficult global challenges. He is remembered in Pakistan for his efforts to mobilize international community after 2005 earthquake in Pakistan,” he said.

Former US President George H.W. Bush, who presided over the end of the Cold War and routed Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi army but lost a chance for a second term after breaking a no-new-taxes pledge, died on Friday at the age of 94, a family spokesman said.

Bush, the 41st president of the United States, lived longer than any of his predecessors. His death at 10:10 p.m. Central time was announced in a statement issued by longtime spokesman Jim McGrath.
