Helmut Kohl


Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said June 16 on the passing of former Chancellor Helmut Kohl:

"He was a great statesman, a great German politician and above all a great European. Not only did he do such a lot for German reunification, but also for the integration of Europe. That is his great legacy. That is how we will remember him. Our thoughts are with his family und his children. A truly great German has passed."
