WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tonight, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10) released the following statement on the passing of Dr. Henry Kissinger:

“Recently, I had an opportunity to spend time with Henry Kissinger and hear his thoughts about U.S.-China relations, artificial intelligence, and nuclear weapons. His knowledge and perception of issues and policy were extraordinary. 

“Dr. Kissinger was a remarkable man who shaped world history. As Secretary of State under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, Dr. Kissinger had a unique ability to navigate hot-button geopolitical issues and build meaningful relationships with international leaders.

“As we mourn the loss of this distinguished statesman, we should also celebrate his life and all that he was able to achieve in the name of peace and diplomacy.

“I would like to offer my deepest condolences to Nancy and his family.” 


Congressman Turner last met with Dr. Kissinger at his New York City office in September 2023.
