Statement by President Barroso on the passing away of Gabriel García Márquez

"It is with great sadness that I have learned of the passing away of Gabriel García Márquez.

Gabriel García Márquez was a voice of Latin America who became a voice of our world. His imagination has made us richer, and his passing away makes us poorer. His work will endure.

I present my sincere condolences to his family."
