The Elders are deeply saddened to hear of the death of former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali.
They remember him with deep affection, particularly from their meeting with him in Cairo in 2012, and pay tribute to his record as a distinguished servant of his country and the international community.
Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders, said:
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Boutros Boutros-Ghali. I had the honour to work under him as Secretary-General and remember his life-long commitment to peacekeeping operations, particularly in the Middle East dating back to his role in securing the Camp David Accords. The world has lost a valuable voice, and on behalf of The Elders I extend my condolences to his wife and family.”
