In his message sent through US Secretary of State Antony J Blinken, the Foreign Minister said Powell will be remembered for his leadership role in shaping contemporary US foreign policy and contributions. 

Dr Momen said: "He earned respect both at home and abroad through his work and diplomatic acumen. He had the moral courage to confess that his presentation on 'weapons of mass destruction of Iraq" was not accurate." 

The Foreign Minister offered their heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family for this great loss. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time," he added.
