OFFICIAL STATEMENT 111
Kofi Annan

​The Spanish Government sends its condolences for the passing away of the former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan. A true statesman and defender of multilateralism as the only possible way to achieve progress, peace and dignity for all human beings, Kofi Annan embodied the United Nations values and principles. He will be remembered for leading the way towards a deep reform of the Organization which led to it being a more effective instrument for all humanity

18/08/2018

Spain recognises his commitment to peace, that constituted the basis for the Organization been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize under his leadership in the fight against poverty, all within a framework of the promotion of the Millennium Development Goals and his commitment to the defence and protection of human rights for all men and women around the world.

Kofi Annan proved to be a good friend of Spain, where he was invited several times.

Thus, the Spanish Government expresses its most sincere condolences to Kofi Annan's widow and children and for the entire United Nations family; thousands of people are honouring his memory today and wish to follow in his footsteps.
