The United Nations, where he served as Under-Secretary-General for Political and Security Council Affairs in the 1950s when the late Dag Hammarskjöld was Secretary-General, noted Mr. Dobrynin's significant contribution to promoting international cooperation.
"As ambassador to Washington he played a major role in saving the world from a nuclear disaster during the crisis of October 1962," the statement said.
