Statement from President Obama on the Passing of Kofi Annan


THE OFFICE OF BARACK OBAMA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 18, 2018


Kofi Annan was a diplomat and humanitarian who embodied the mission of the United Nations like few others. His integrity, persistence, optimism, and sense of our common humanity always informed his outreach to the community of nations. Long after he had broken barriers, Kofi never stopped his pursuit of a better world, and made time to motivate and inspire the next generation of leaders. Michelle and I offer our condolences to his family and many loved ones.
