Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Silvan Shalom extends his condolences to the US government and people and to the Reagan family on the passing of US President Ronald Reagan.
 
President Reagan was a strong supporter of the State of Israel. He understood intimately the security needs of Israel and acted always as a staunch ally and friend.

The people of Israel mourn the loss of one of the heroes of this generation, a committed leader and vigilant promoter and protector of the freedoms and democratic values that continue to serve as the solid foundation of the community of nations today.
