The Cold War may have ended under George H.W. Bush, but the rivalry between the U.S. and Russian Federation is back with a vengeance. After the trip, he helped raised funds for the quake victims. But Shah quickly took the floor and cited a rule that once the voting process has begun, the Assembly proceedings can not be stopped.

But that defeat had no effect on the friendship between Shahi and Bush.

Bush, the 41st president of the United States, lived longer than any of his predecessors.

"With sound judgment, common sense, and unflappable leadership, President Bush guided our nation, and the world, to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War", Trump said.

Editorial cartoonist Marshall Ramsey of the Clarion Ledger shows Bush flying his TBM Avenger, the same plane he flew in the Navy during World War II, flying up into the clouds to join his wife who passed away in April and their young daughter who passed away from Leukemia at age 3 in 1953.

Bush faced a dramatically changing world, as the Cold War ended after 40 bitter years, the Communist empire broke up, and the Berlin Wall fell. After graduation Bush embarked on a career in the oil industry of West Texas.

He served in the US House of Representatives, as Washington's envoy to China and as chief of the Central Intelligence Agency before being elected Ronald Reagan's vice president. His son, George W. Bush also became the 43rd president eight years later, becoming the only other USA president, who had a son who also became president, after John Adams. The former president, a Republican, is expected to lie in state in the US Capitol and then be buried at his presidential library in Texas, where students held a candlelight vigil early Saturday, local media reported.

He declared a "new world order" in 1990 and drove Iraq from Kuwait in a matter of weeks with a lightning air and ground assault - and the backing of a coalition of 32 nations. The Republican was defeated in his bid for a second term by Democrat Bill Clinton.

Mulroney, whose nine years in power overlapped with Bush's four, said the last time he saw his friend was in late September, when he was in Kennebunkport, Maine, to accept the George Bush Award for Excellence in Public Service.

Bush "was a great friend of Canada, and he made very important things possible for Canadian history", Mulroney said.
