President Reuven Rivlin paid his respects Friday to Singapore's late first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew at the lying in state for the leader who died Monday at age 91.

"'A good name is better than a good perfume' (Ecc. 7:1), for a good name will last forever.  In memory of a leader whose deeds and legacy will be remembered always.  A dear friend of Israel and the Jewish people," Rivlin wrote in the official book of condolence.

Rivlin's visit to the Southeast Asian state was the first of an Israeli president since that of Chaim Herzog in 1987.
