On the Passing of Kofi Annan

On the passing of the 7th Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, on 18 August 2018, the United Nations family in Bhutan would like to express our deepest condolences to his family members.

We thank the Royal Government of Bhutan for initiating the lighting of a thousand butter-lamps at the Tashichho Dzong on Wednesday, 22 August.

The United Nations is opening a Book of Condolences for all well-wishers at the UN House in Kawangjangsa, Thimphu until 24 August.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of a true global leader.

“We need to think of the future and the planet we are going to leave to our children and their children.’

May his soul rest in peace.
