Remembrance of Jacques Chirac at the Embassy of France
As Monday, September 30 was a day of National Mourning in France, our Ambassador Philippe Etienne paid tribute to late Former President Jacques Chirac, who passed out on September 26th. Our community gathered at the Embassy for a minute of silence, along with representatives of the Department of State and Christine Lagarde, Former Managing Director of the IMF and Nominated President of the European Central Bank.
Citizens, visitors around the world and officials from various embassies came to pay their respects to President Chirac by signing a book of condolences
The Embassy of France is grateful for this solidarity.
