Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was “a great leader,” said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday following a ceremony in honor of the late British leader.

“She was not only an economic leader but a world leader, helping, along with President Reagan, to end the Cold War bloodlessly,” Netanyahu said.

Thatcher “inspired many around the world with conviction, determination and courage,” the prime minister added.

Over 2,300 guests arrived at the funeral from across the world paid their respects to the country's first and only female leader, who died from a stroke on 8 April aged 87.
