Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of President Jacques Chirac
Hillary and I join the people of France in mourning the passing of President Jacques Chirac. He was a bold, skilled statesman who never wavered in his defense of French interests or his pursuit of a strong, unified, and free Europe. I will always be proud to have worked closely with him as President to strengthen the transatlantic alliance, support the growth and expansion of the EU, and end the conflict in Bosnia. And I will always be grateful for his genuine kindness and friendship to Hillary and me. My thoughts are with Bernadette and his family.
