Former US President George Bush senior.
BRUSSELS, Dec 1 — Alexander Shishlo. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called the 41st U.S. President George H. W. Bush, who died Friday, as an example of a statesman.
“The world has lost a statesman and leader who was an example to us all. I personally lost a friend,” — said in a statement Juncker, issued in Brussels.
According to Juncker, Bush “has always served his country with honor, bravery and dignity, and it also has defined his presidency in a period of tremendous change and instability in the world.”
