World Leaders Pay Respects to Former President Jiang Zemin
The United Nations and a number of foreign officials, including the Russian president and the top U.S. envoy to China, have expressed condolences on the passing of former Chinese President Jiang Zemin.
The delegates of the U.N. Security Council observed one minute of silence on Wednesday before a regular meeting. In a statement published on the same day, the organization’s Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called Jiang a “steadfast advocate for international engagement” whose tenure was marked by “substantial economic progress.”
