With this message, the Presidential House of Chile announces the death of former President Sebastián Piñera.

GABRIEL BORIC
President, Chile

I extend a warm fraternal embrace to his wife, Cecilia Morel, to his children Magdalena, Cecilia, Sebastián, and Cristóbal and also to all Chilean men and women who today receive this news with sorrow and pain.

The former president had previously visited Rome on several occasions. His last meeting with Pope Francis was in 2021. During this audience, the two discussed the socio-economic development of Chile and its relationship with the Catholic Church. In 2011, Piñera also met with Pope Benedict XVI, who congratulated him on the rescue of a group of miners who had been trapped almost half a mile underground.
