Rice On Death of Prince of Monaco Rainier III

Death of Prince of Monaco Rainier III

Statement by Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
April 6, 2005

I wish to express my sincere condolences to the people of Monaco, and to the Royal family, upon the death of His Serene Highness Prince Rainier III. Prince Rainier gave exemplary service to the people of Monaco. He had a deep and lasting friendship with the United States and promoted our shared values of freedom and human rights. Under Prince Rainier's leadership Monaco accomplished great things, especially in the global war on terror, in which Monaco has played a decisive role by combating terrorist financing. His marriage to Her Serene Highness Grace Kelly further endeared the Prince and Monaco to the American people. He was a great leader, a great man, and he will be greatly missed.
