Statement by the Secretary-General – on the passing of Yury Fedotov

I was very saddened to learn of the passing of Yury Fedotov.  I fondly recall Mr. Fedotov’s decade of service as Director-General of the United Nations Office at Vienna and Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
Throughout his tenure, Mr. Fedotov demonstrated great skill and sensitivity in helping Member States overcome differences and chart a path of shared progress on some of the most complex issues on the international agenda.
