Argentina Mourns Death of Ex-Foreign Minister Dante Caputo

BUENOS AIRES – Dante Caputo, who was foreign minister in Argentina’s first democratic government following the 1976-1983 military regime, passed away in Buenos Aires, state news agency Telam said on Wednesday. He was 74.

Caputo died Tuesday night at the Center for Medical Education and Clinical Research, where he was being treated for cancer.

During the administration of President Raul Alfonsin, in which Caputo served as foreign minister from 1983-1989, he signed a peace treaty between Argentina and Chile, ending the Beagle Channel border dispute.

Caputo also launched trade negotiations with Brazil and Uruguay, helping establish what would later become the Mercosur trade bloc.

A wake for the former diplomat will take place on Wednesday afternoon and he will be buried on Thursday.
