Leaders from around the world expressed their condolences to Thatcher family.

President Barack Obama
Here in America, many of us will never forget her standing shoulder to shoulder with President Reagan, reminding the world that we are not simply carried along by the currents of history -- we can shape them with moral conviction, unyielding courage and iron will.

Former President Bill Clinton

British PM David Cameron

First lady Nancy Reagan
Ronnie and Margaret were political soul mates, committed to freedom and resolved to end communism. The world has lost a true champion of freedom and democracy.
