Response by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima upon the death of former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan

"It was with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Kofi Annan. We remember his warmth and wisdom. He worked tirelessly for peace, justice and a better life for people all over the world. Kofi Annan had the ability to bring people together. With a voice that resonated with compassion and conviction, he knew how to engage and motivate people. Our thoughts are with his wife and children."
