Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) Foreign Minister Joseph Wu on Tuesday paid his respects to former U.S. President George H.W. Bush when he signed a condolence book at the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the de facto U.S. embassy in Taiwan.

According to a photo tweeted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) late on Tuesday, Wu signed the condolence book following the passing of the 41st president of the U.S., on Nov. 30. He was 94.

"With the highest respect & profoundest sympathies, Minister Wu signed the condolence book for former US President George H. W. Bush today at the AIT," said the tweet.

In a Wednesday Facebook post, AIT thanked everyone who visited its offices and the American Center to sign the condolence book for Bush.

"We appreciate your memories and kind wishes," it noted. The post came with a photo of Wu signing the book.

AIT has made condolence books available at both its headquarters in Taipei's Xinyi road and the American center. The latter is also open to the general public to express their sympathy.

Bush served as the 41st president of the U.S. from 1989 to 1993. After leaving office in January 1993, Bush and his wife Barbara visited Taiwan for three days in December of that year.

President Tsai Ing-wen extended her condolences Saturday to the Bush family, describing the former president as a longtime friend of Taiwan.
