UNITED NATIONS, February 16. /TASS/. Egyptian diplomat Boutros Boutros-Ghali who served as sixth UN Secretary General from 1992 to 1996 has died aged 93.
The president of the UN Security Council, Venezuelan Ambassador Rafael Ramirez, announced Boutros-Ghali's death at the opening of Tuesday’s session on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The 15 council members observed a minute’s silence.
Boutros-Ghali oversaw the UN at a time when it dealt with several world crises, including the break-up of Yugoslavia and the Rwandan Genocide.
He was the only UN chief not re-elected for the second five-year term because of the US veto.
