Henry A. Kissinger: 1923-2023
5 | December | 2023

Henry Kissinger was probably the most powerful and influential American diplomat and Secretary of State of the 20th century. A realist, he was always guided by the defence of the national interest, with a decisive impact on the world. He shaped the geopolitics of the Cold War, negotiating with world leaders such as Deng Xiaoping, Leonid Brezhnev, Anwar Sadat and Golda Meir, among others. Controversial and a staunch anti-communist, he promoted a strategy of détente with Russia and the restoration of relations with China.
