German's unification architect, Helmut Kohl dies at 87

Helmut Kohl, the physically imposing German chancellor whose reunification of a nation divided by the Cold War put Germany at the heart of a united Europe, has died at his home in Ludwigshafen aged 87.

Leading British tributes to the leader who brought about the reunification of Germany, the former prime minister said Mr Kohl was an intensely human man with a mischievous sense of fun.

Kohl spearheaded, less than a year later, the end of Germany's division at the front line of the Cold War. "Throughout our endeavors, Helmut was a rock - both steady and strong", Bush said Friday.

"A life has ended and the person who lived it will go down in history", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, speaking from Rome.

He prayed for the Almighty God to bless Kohl and the freedom he helped to secure.

The woman, who police have not named, was subdued by a police officer who had joined the force two weeks earlier. The flight team chose to land the plane in at CCIA and a passenger was detained.

Former U.S. ambassador to Germany, John Kornblum said that most of the time Kohl looked like he was half asleep.

If Kohl can be likened to any American politician, it is nearly certainly another under-estimated figure from a modest background, who was also frequently mocked, but who also turned out to be a leader of effect.

"I will never forget walking with him through the Brandenburg Gate in 1994 for a large rally on the eastern side, and seeing genuine hope in the eyes of tens of thousands of young people".

"Helmut hated war - but he detested totalitarianism even more", former USA president George H.W. Bush said in a statement of the former German chancellor.

In a tweet, PN MEP David Casa hailed Kohl as "a great European man, friend and ally for Malta". The climate is still less friendly to foreigners in the east, according to a study by Leipzig University researchers who interviewed 16,000 Germans over 10 years. Meeting with President Ronald Reagan, Kohl was delighted to learn they both agreed on who was the greatest president of the 20th century: Harry Truman.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said "a tribute to the memory of chancellor Kohl. He was not only the father of German reunification, but also an advocate for Europe and the trans-Atlantic relationship".

From 1969 to 1976, he was Minister President of Rhineland-Palatinate. In the UK, he is remembered for his differences over the European Union with the late UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

"Helmut's death hurts me deeply".

"My mentor, my friend, the very essence of Europe, he will be greatly, greatly missed".

Born in Ludwigshafen am Rhein on April 3, 1930, Helmut Kohl was drafted to the German army in 1945 but not involved in combat, with the Second World War ending that year.

"Helmut Kohl was an important German, and an important European". "United Germany and shaped the European Union of today". He also drew criticism for failing to embark on economic reforms.
