Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the passing of Dick Lugar

Hillary and I are saddened by the passing of Senator Dick Lugar. He was a man of great decency who was widely respected on both sides of the aisle for his vast policy knowledge, especially on foreign affairs, and his commitment to bipartisan solutions. His decades-long work on nuclear nonproliferation, as well as his belief in robust foreign aid, made America and the world safer and stronger. Hillary was proud to serve alongside him in the Senate, and I will always be grateful to have worked with him as President on implementing the Nunn-Lugar Act to reduce nuclear weapons after the end of the Cold War, and passing the African Growth and Opportunity Act. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
