Gabriel Valdés

Gabriel Valdés Subercaseaux in 2009

Gabriel Valdés Subercaseaux (July 3, 1919 – September 7, 2011) was a Chilean politician, lawyer and diplomat.[1] Valdes served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Chile under President Eduardo Frei Montalva from 1964 to 1970.[2] A vocal opponent of the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, which held power from 1975 to 1990, Valdés worked for Chile's transition to democracy.[2]

Valdes served as President of the Senate of Chile, considered the second most important office in the country after the presidency, from 1990 to 1996.[2] He retired from the Senate in 2006.[2]

Gabriel Valdés died from bronchitis on September 7, 2011, at his home in Santiago, Chile, at the age of 92.[2] He had recently been admitted as a patient at Clínica Alemana for treatment of a long illness.[2]
