Chairman Robert Menendez on the Death of Margaret Thatcher

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement on the death of Margaret Thatcher:

“Margaret Thatcher was a dynamic force as an ally to the United States in winning the cold War and overcoming the despotism and repression suffered by hundreds of millions at the hands of Soviet communism. She was a persuasive, transformative leader who shaped world events with the power of her personality. A grocer’s daughter, she was known, affectionately and deservedly as “The Iron Lady. Margaret Thatcher’s life and legacy of leadership will endure for many generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with the people of Great Britain and the world as we mourn her passing.”
