Israel’s Ambassador to the United States and the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, on Sunday expressed condolences over the death of former US Secretary of State George Shultz.
“The people of Israel stand with the American people in mourning the loss of former Secretary of State George Schultz. A titan of American foreign policy, a champion of global democracy and a true friend to the State of Israel,” said Erdan.
“George Schultz deeply believed in standing up to fanaticism and threats to freedom and was always there for guidance and consultation. May his memory be a blessing,” he added.
