Former US Secretary of State George Shultz dies at 100

FILE PIC
Former US Secretary of State, George Shultz who significantly shaped foreign policy in the late 20th Century, has died at the age of 100. He passed away on Saturday at his home in California. He served three former Presidents - Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan - in various roles
 
His efforts as America's top diplomat from 1982 to 1989 under the former President Ronald Reagan helped lead to the conclusion of the four decade long Cold War that began after World War Two.
 
The Hoover Institution, where Mr Schultz worked as a distinguished fellow, said the statesman had been instrumental in changing the direction of history by using the tools of diplomacy to bring the Cold War to an end.
 
Shultz was a Republican, but more pragmatic than ideological. He worked on various federal task forces at the request of former Presidents John F Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. He was an informal but influential adviser on foreign policy to Former US President George W Bush.
