Fmr. Foreign Affairs Minister Dr Rudy Insanally dies
Message from President Dr Irfaan Ali on the passing of Dr. Rudy Insanally:
It is with a heavy heart that I have learnt of the passing of Dr. Rudy Insanally, one of Guyana’s foremost diplomats and a distinguished international statesman.
Dr. Insanally’s diplomatic acumen and leadership have earned him deservedly the gratitude of our nation. As Guyana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2001 to 2008, Dr. Insanally advanced Guyana’s national interest on the international stage. His was a life dedicated to diplomacy and particularly for advocating the cause of small states.
The United Nations was his second home. He had the honor of serving as the President of the United Nations General Assembly and was for many years Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the world’s foremost multilateral institution. These and his tireless exertions in numerous other ambassadorial positions distinguish him as a diplomat par excellence.
I extend to his entire family my deepest condolences.
