New York, NY, October 29, 2010 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) expressed its deepest condolences to the president and people of Argentina on the death of Nestor Kirchner, the country's former president and a great Argentinean leader.

"Nestor Kirchner's distinguished service to Argentina and Latin America leaves an enduring legacy," said Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "The Anti-Defamation League will always remember his outreach to the Argentinean Jewish community and responsiveness to Jewish community concerns in Argentina and elsewhere in Latin America. He was a friend of the Jewish People."
