Madeleine Albright, the first woman to serve as US Secretary of State, died of cancer today, Wednesday, at the age of 84.
The position of Secretary of State in the United States is the same as that of Secretary of State in other countries.
He was elected by President Bill Clinton in 1996. He has been Secretary of State for the last four years of the Clinton administration.

Until Kamala Harris was elected Vice President in 2020, Albright was the woman who held the most important position in the US government alongside Hillary Clinton, who was Secretary of State in the Barack Obama administration.
However, his name was never considered for the presidency – he was born in the Czechoslovak Republic.

In 2012, President Obama presented Albright with the prestigious Citizen of the United States Medal of Freedom.
At the time, Obama said his life had inspired all Americans.
After stepping down as Secretary of State, Clinton’s successor, President George W. Bush, resigned. He criticized Bush for not using too much diplomacy and for wanting to use tactics related to the use of force in international relations.
He said Bush had stunned moderate Arab leaders and created a potential confrontation with Europeans.
Death with family and friends
The family announced Albright’s death through social media. According to the text, she was surrounded by family and friends.
“We lost a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and girlfriend,” the text says.
