Former US president George W. Bush, who picked Colin Powell as his secretary of state, on Monday paid tribute to the late top diplomat and war hero as a “great” man who counselled multiple presidents.

“He was a great public servant, starting with his time as a soldier during Vietnam,” Bush said in a statement, adding that the former national security advisor and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was “highly respected at home and abroad.”

Powell died on Monday of complications from Covid-19 at age 84.
