Statement by Madeleine Albright on behalf of the Aspen Ministers Forum

June 6, 2017  • Aspen Strategy Group

All of the members of the Aspen Minsters Forum were deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of our cherished colleague Niels Helveg Petersen, the former Foreign Minister of Denmark. Niels was a lifelong advocate for democratic values, European unity, and strong transatlantic ties. He was an active member and supporter of the Aspen Minsters Forum, and he did much to advance the cause of principled transatlantic dialogue in the years following his government service. He will be dearly missed, and we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife and to his family.
