NEW YORK - Former US Secretary of State and Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry Kissinger underwent heart surgery at a New York City hospital on Tuesday and was resting comfortably, hospital officials said.

Kissinger, 91, underwent an aortic valve replacement procedure, according to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

The German-born Jewish refugee served as Secretary of State under Republican Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, with a hand in the diplomatic opening of China, landmark US-Soviet arms control talks, expanded ties between Israel and its Arab neighbors and the Paris Peace Accord with North Vietnam.
