ANR Robinson Condolences

Statement attributable to the President of the General Assembly

United Nations, New York, 13 April 2014

It is with great sadness that I have learnt of the passing of His Excellency Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, former Prime Minister and former President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.   On behalf of myself and the Office of the President of the General Assembly, I wish to extend my sincere condolences and respect to his family and to the Government and people of Trinidad and Tobago.

A. N. R. Robinson's indefatigable commitment to peace, justice and multilateralism is a legacy for his people, our Caribbean region and the international community at large. He was a national, regional and international leader, the initial proponent of the International Criminal Court and a true friend of the United Nations.
