[September 17th 1961]
In the name of ONUC, we are deeply sorry about the decease of Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold, who was a true honorable man, engaged with the humanitarian causes in Katanga who suffered a sudden death. The causes that led to his departure are still uncertain. Our feelings are with his family and friends.
