The President of the United Nations General Assembly H.E. John W. Ashe expresses his condolences for the loss of H.E. Peter Florin, a native of Germany, who presided over the 42nd session of the United Nations General Assembly.

"It is with sadness that I have I learned of the loss of his H.E. Peter Florin, who ably served our General Assembly during the years 1987 and 1988. His service is part of a long legacy of men and women whose dedication and commitment have helped the Assembly maintain its role as the chief deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the United Nations. My sympathies are extended to his family and loved ones."
