The United States lost one of its “most dependable and distinctive voices on foreign affairs with the passing of Henry Kissinger,” former president George W. Bush said Wednesday.

Kissinger’s rise as a German refugee to the pinnacle of US foreign policy decision-making says “as much about his greatness as it did America’s greatness,” Bush said.

AFP earlier reported that the former US secretary of state whose unapologetic promotion of raw American power helped shape ...-World War II world, died Wednesday, aged 100.

His family has revealed in a statement that they would hold a private funeral, with a memorial service to take place later in New York, where Kissinger grew up after his Jewish family fled Nazi, Germany.

However, the statement did not provide the cause of his death. Kissinger had remained active even at as a centenarian, travelling to China in July to meet President Xi Jinping.
