An aristocrat of Romanian diplomacy past away at an unjustifiably young age. Mihnea Constantinescu has ennobled the sense of public service, crossing times and political regimes with the same unaltered professional and national conscience.

I had the chance to work with Mihnea, as did generations of dignitaries and senior officials from home and abroad. He leaves behind a remarkable memory and a strong footprint on the national status of the Romanian State. I wish you a smooth road to heaven, Mihnea! God rest him in peace!
