Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State, has away at the age of 100. Kissinger was a divisive and important figure in US foreign policy throughout the Cold War.

The Connecticut-based former diplomat, who was born in Germany, has away.

Leading the accolades was former US President George W. Bush, who declared that the country had “lost one of the most dependable and distinctive voices on foreign affairs.”

Tony Blair, the former prime minister of the United Kingdom, called Kissinger an artist of diplomacy and stated that his motivation sprang from “a genuine love of the free world and the need to protect it.”

Tricia Nixon Cox and Julie Nixon Eisenhower, the daughters of President Richard Nixon, described Henry Kissinger’s life narrative as “so unique – and so thoroughly American.”

The statement continued, “Henry Kissinger will long be remembered for his many achievements in advancing the cause of peace.” “But we will always remember his character,”

The school teacher’s son was born in Germany in 1923, but he didn’t get to the US until 1938, when he and his family fled the Nazis. His accent from his home Bavaria never really left.

After obtaining US citizenship in 1943, he served in the US Army for three years before joining the Counter Intelligence Corps.

He taught international relations at Harvard after obtaining a PhD, a master’s degree, and a bachelor’s degree.

He was appointed national security adviser by then-President Nixon in 1969, a post that gave him significant influence over US foreign policy.

During his eight years from 1969 to 1977 as both secretary of state and national security adviser, he oversaw the US’s final withdrawal from the Vietnam War, restored relations with China, and ended hostilities in the Middle East between Israel and Egypt and Syria during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. This endeavor gave rise to the concept of shuttle diplomacy as a whole.
