Nelson R. Mandela, 1992 Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation, has died.

The jury that bestowed this award on the personage who was President of the Republic of South Africa from 1994 to 1999 was chaired by Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo and made up of Teodoro López-Cuesta Egocheaga, Guido Brunner, Emilio Cassinello, Antonio Garrigues Walker, Amaro González de Mesa, Fernando Morán, Marcelino Oreja, Guillermo Perinat and Nicolás Sartorius.

In this respect, as reflected in the minutes of the jury that year, his "political action and moral influence with two communities divided by deep and long-standing antagonism have, in conditions of extreme difficulty, laid the foundations for peace and co-operation among the citizens of South Africa and the country's democratic organisation in the future. Their efforts have thus addressed one of the essential issues of our time: multi-racial co-existence within a framework of respect for human rights".

The 1992 Awards Ceremony was held on 31st October at the Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo and was presided over by HRH The Prince of Asturias. Besides the Prince's address, speeches were also made by Emilio García Gómez, Elizabeth Taylor, Frederich G. Conradie, on behalf of Frederick W. De Klerk, and Nelson Mandela himself.
