(Office of the Governor) — Gov. Ralph DLG Torres and Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios issued the following statement on the passing of former Palau President Kuniwo Nakamura:

“On behalf of the people of the Commonwealth, we join our brothers and sisters of the Republic of Palau and President Tommy E. Remengesau Jr. in mourning the loss of former President Kuniwo Nakamura, who passed away earlier last week.

“We would also like to extend our deepest heartfelt condolences to the Nakamura family during this difficult time.

“President Nakamura was a true pioneer for the Republic of Palau, who helped navigate his nation from the Trust Territory days to their independence, eventually serving as their President from 1993-2001.

“Being a recipient of the World Peace Prize in 1997, President Nakamura was a champion of Palau’s cultural identity, natural environment, and prosperity, and consistently worked to preserve it. There is no doubt his impact was felt on a global level.

“His commitment to his people and dedication to public service will continue to serve as an inspiration to all islanders across the Pacific. We truly thank him for service to all of Micronesia.”
