It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness…
In 2001, Annan and the UN were co-recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize.
After his tenure as secretary general, he served as the UN-Arab League special envoy for Syria in 2012, until he became frustrated with the lack of progress.
