Taipei, Dec. 1 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Saturday extended her condolences to the family of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, who died at the age of 94 in Houston.

Presidential Office spokesman Alex Huang (黃重諺) said Tsai could not help but feel very sad in the wake of the death of the former U.S. president and was reluctant to say goodbye to the longtime friend of Taiwan.

The death was confirmed by family spokesman Jim McGrath, who said Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday.

Bush was the 41st president of the United States from 1989 to 1993. After leaving office in January 1993, Bush and his wife Barbara Bush visited Taiwan for three days in December.    [FULL  STORY]
