The death of the deceased Chancellor Helmut Kohl on Friday, George H. Bush, former President of the United States
Older President Bush, “as a true friend of freedom,” and one of the great leaders of Europe after World War II, praised the former German Chancellor. George H. Bush was President of the United States between 1989 and 1993 and worked closely with Helmut Kohl both in the demolition of the Berlin Wall and in the German reunification process. In his statement, the 41st President of the United States highlighted the anti-war sentiments of the former Chancellor and underlined that he even more hated self-righteousness than the war. “Our close co-operation in the peaceful completion of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany within the framework of NATO remains one of the greatest happiness in my life,” said George H. Bush. “In our joint endeavors, Helmut Kohl was a rock, firm and strong. Today we are mourned for losing it, but we know that its remarkable life will inspire courageous generations of boldness and great accomplishments,” said George H. Bush. When announcing the death of the former German Chancellor, CBS television reminded that former US President Bill Clinton, George H. Bush and George W. Bush, mentioned Helmut Kohl as one of the biggest European politicians in the second half of the last century. Bill Clinton, President of the United States between 1993 and 2001, made a statement in his statement that Helmut Kohl “has prepared Europe for the 21st Century”. “It is intended to answer the most important issues of its age, and with its correct answers it has made it possible for a strong and prosperous Germany to reunite and to create the European Union,” said the 42nd President of the United States.
Like President George Bush, Clinton also recalled personal memory, specifically when he participated with a Kohler Chancellor in 1994 at a Berlin summit. “Then I realized that Helmut Kohl was the one who could help the Germans to make their dream come true. And history shows that he has done this,” said Bill Clinton.
