Lazar Mojsov (Macedonian: Лазар Мојсов; 19 December 1920 – 25 August 2011) was a Macedonian journalist, communist politician and diplomat from SFR Yugoslavia.


Mojsov received his doctoral degree from the University of Belgrade's Law School. He fought for the anti-fascist partisans in World War II and continued to rise through the ranks of the Communist Party after 1945. He was attorney general of the Socialist Republic of Macedonia from 1948 to 1951. During the next two decades, he served as a member of the parliaments of SFR Yugoslavia and SR Macedonia and as a newspaper editor.

Meanwhile, he began a diplomatic career, serving as Yugoslav ambassador to the Soviet Union and Mongolia from 1958 to 1961 and as ambassador to Austria from 1967 to 1969. From 1969 to 1974, he served as Yugoslav ambassador to the United Nations, Guyana and Jamaica.

From 1974 to 1982, Mojsov was deputy foreign minister of Yugoslavia, and, from 1977 to 1978, he was the president of the United Nations General Assembly. From 1980 to 1981, he served as Chairman of the Presidium of the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia, and from May 1982 to May 1984, he was the foreign minister. From 1984 to 1989, he was a member of the collective presidency of Yugoslavia and was its chairman from 1987
