Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday expressed condolences following the death of former US Secretary of State George Schultz.
“My wife and I deeply mourn the passing of a great friend of Israel and a great personal friend of ours, Secretary of State George Schultz. An economist by training, Schultz led a team of experts that advised Israel how to move to a market economy. As Secretary of State he stood by Israel in our fight against terrorism and in countless other challenges, contributing greatly to the alliance between Israel and the United States. I never met a man more decent, honest and wise. America has lost a great patriot and we have lost a wonderful friend,” said Netanyahu.
