NUG leaders condole former US president demise

KABUL: President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive (CE) Dr. Abdullah Abdullah have condoled the death of former US President George WH Bush Senior yesterday.
“I am very saddened by the demise of former U.S. President, George W.H. Bush. On behalf of Afghan government and nation, I convey our condolences to the Bush family, American government and people,” the President in a tweet.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah has also expressed his sadness after hearing about the demise of former US president.
“Deeply saddened to hear of the demise of the former US President George Herbert Walker Bush, a great friend & supporter of the Afghanistan throughout the years. My condolences to George W. Bush, his family, friends and colleagues around the world,” he added.
Former US President George HW Bush has died at the age of 94, his son George W Bush has announced.Bush Sr served as the 41st US president between 1989 and 1993, his term defined by the end of the Cold War and the first Iraq war against Saddam Hussein, according to the BBC.
Bush Sr’s single presidential term in office was dominated by foreign policy – the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. Bush became president after serving two terms as vice-president to Ronald Reagan, but he suffered the ignominy of becoming a single-term president – defeated by Bill Clinton in the 1992 election amid a weakening economy.
In April, he was admitted to hospital with a blood infection but had since been discharged. Bush was also being treated for a form of Parkinson’s disease.
