Havana, 1 May 2022.

Veteran Cuban diplomat and politician Ricardo Alarcon passed away today in Havana, close to his 85th birthday, relatives and official sources confirmed.

The history of Cuban revolutionary diplomacy cannot be written without mentioning among its most precious pages the brilliant and innovative performance of Ricardo Alarcon de Quesada, the Havana embassy in Romania wrote on social media.

Alarcon served as Foreign Minister from 1991 to 1993; he was Cuba’s ambassador to the UN when the island sat at the Security Council as a non-permanent representative, and for 20 years he presided over Cuba’s National Assembly of People’s Power (parliament).
