Venezuela regrets physical disappearance of former UN secretary general Javier Pérez Cuéllar
The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan people, deeply regrets the physical demise of Javier Pérez de Cuéllar, the only Latin American to serve as UN Secretary-General (1982-1991), occupation from which he contributed, in a period of great turbulence and international turmoil, to resolve internal conflicts in several countries, through the promotion and consolidation of lasting solutions for peaceful and democratic coexistence in societies deeply divided into the political, social and economic fields; as well as to the signing of important peace agreements between nations and the promotion of the freedom and independence of the peoples.
Javier Pérez de Cuéllar leaves a deep mark on the teaching of diplomatic work and an everlasting testimony of the search for political paths towards peace and harmony among nations.
On behalf of the people and the Bolivarian Government, deeply moved by their irreparable loss, we pay tribute to his excellent career, while affirming the unwavering resolve for the consolidation of a world that is guided by respect for international law and equality among peoples, as a rule of universal coexistence.
