‘Endlessly Generous’: Tributes Pour In as Henry Kissinger Passes Away at 100

Published

on

Renowned diplomat and former U.S. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, has passed away at the age of 100.

He leaves the world mourning the loss of a statesman whose legacy was marked by his enduring commitment to diplomacy and international relations.

Kissinger, who served under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, was celebrated for his role in shaping the United States’ foreign policy during the Cold War era. His commitment to diplomacy, marked by his tireless efforts to build bridges between nations, earned him the reputation of being “endlessly generous” in his pursuit of peaceful solutions to global conflicts.

He died at his home in Connecticut, according to his consulting firm Kissinger Associates, although his cause of death was not revealed.

Throughout his career, Kissinger played pivotal roles in landmark diplomatic negotiations, including the opening of relations with China and the signing of the Paris Peace Accords, which brought an end to the Vietnam War. His contributions extended beyond his official duties, as he continued to advocate for international cooperation and understanding long after leaving office.

As the world pays tribute to this diplomatic giant, his legacy serves as a reminder of the enduring value of diplomacy in an ever-changing global landscape.

Tributes flow

Former US president George W. Bush said Kissinger was one of America’s “most dependable and distinctive voices on foreign affairs”.

“I have long admired the man who fled the Nazis as a young boy from a Jewish family, then fought them in the United States Army,” he said.

“When he later became Secretary of State, his appointment as a former refugee said as much about his greatness as it did America’s greatness.

“He worked in the administrations of two presidents and counseled many more. I am grateful for that service and advice, but I am most grateful for his friendship.”

FAA uncovers Boeing quality control issues

Published

The Federal Aviation Administration disclosed concerning findings from its 737 MAX production audit involving Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

The audit uncovered multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to adhere to manufacturing quality control standards.

The FAA highlighted significant “non-compliance issues” within Boeing’s manufacturing processes, including concerns related to parts handling, storage, and product control.

While a summary of the audit findings has been shared with the companies involved, the details have not been made public due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Following a mid-air emergency on January 5 involving a new Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where a door plug was lost at 16,000 feet, the FAA initiated the audit.

This incident prompted a temporary grounding of the MAX 9 and raised questions about the aircraft’s safety protocols.

New acquisition

Boeing, in response to these revelations, has been in discussions to acquire Spirit AeroSystems.

However, the company has not provided immediate comment regarding the audit findings.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the necessity for Boeing to implement comprehensive corrective measures to address what he termed as “systemic quality-control issues.”

Whitaker stated that Boeing must commit to substantial improvements, with clear milestones and expectations set forth by the FAA.
