Leaders offer condolences for former Argentina president


Share post:

“It was with a great measure of sadness and surprise that I learnt of the passing of your dear husband and former President Dr. Néstor Kirchner,” Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo said.
“The Former President served his country and the Region with an unwavering commitment and aspiration. His passing will present a challenge to our Region since we now have to continue the work of integrating South America without his wisdom and vision.”
Meantime, Cuban President Raul Castro also offered his sincere condolences to Mrs. Fernandez on behalf of the Cuban government and people.
Kirchner died on Wednesday of a heart attack at the Jose Formenti Hospital in El Calafate, Patagonia, 2,680 km (1.7 miles) south of Buenos Aires.
Kirchner, who was general secretary of the Union of South American Nations, had undergone emergency carotid artery surgery in February, and then a successful coronary angioplasty in September for a clogged artery. (CMC)
