A tribute to Emmanuel Macron to Kofi Annan

Emmanuel Macron has paid tribute Saturday to former secretary-general of the united nations and Nobel Peace prize winner Kofi Annan, emphasizing that neither “his eyes calm and resolved, or the force of his fights,” would not be forgotten. Kofi Annan “has left this world during the night. France pays tribute to him. We will never forget his expression calm and resolved, or the force of his fights,” tweeted the French president shortly after the announcement of his death.

The former secretary-general of the united nations and Nobel laureate died Saturday at the age of 80, after having accessed to the rank of a star of global diplomacy during his ten years at the head of the united Nations. The president of the national Assembly, François de Rugy, for its part, regretted that with this death, “it is a great figure of the international policy of multilateralism and North-South relations, which disappears”. “Let’s continue his work of peace and global solidarity”, he tweeted.

“Without peace, there is no progress possible”

The government spokesperson Benjamin Griveaux has paid tribute to Mr Annan by quoting it in a tweet: “Without progress, there is no possible peace. Without peace, there is no progress possible”.
