Hundreds of people joined foreign dignitaries, civil-rights leaders and the vice president of the United States on Wednesday to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela.
The most senior foreign ambassador in the U.S. had just returned to Washington from a trip when a reporter informed him that Nelson Mandela had died. "Oh! What a tragedy! What a tragedy! What a tragedy!' exclaimed Ambassador Roble Olhaye of the African nation of Djibouti.
Asian nations will resist any U.S. attempts to block the rise of China, as Washington pursues a new strategy in the Asia-Pacific region, according to Singapore's former ambassador in Washington.
"He very publicly forgave the people who had persecuted him," Mr. Olhaye said. "He went far beyond anyone's comprehension or imagination."
"He was marvelous during the time of tensions between the U.S. and the United Nations' Security Council," noted Djibouti Ambassador Roble Olhaye, the dean of the diplomatic corps. "France and the U.S. owe him a lot."
