Contradictions on the European continent bring him closer to the goal of creating a “common home”, said Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev at the ceremony of farewell with eks-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. He urged world leaders to move to it, according to RIA Novosti.

As noted by Dmitry Medvedev, “Berlin wall long ago cannibalized for Souvenirs, but its ideological fragments still scattered around the world.” “I must admit that today, because of our differences we are, unfortunately, quite far from the dreams of a common house,” – said Prime Minister, stressing that “United, secure and prosperous Europe is our common goal”.

And this goal is achievable, that proved “Helmut Kohl in more difficult times than today, – said Dmitry Medvedev. – To be a worthy heir of his labors – the responsibility that rests today on all world leaders.”

The head of the Russian government stressed that Helmut Kohl, thought and acted in the pan-European and global scale, wanted “not only United Germany, but a United Europe” and “Russia has seen its integral part”.

We will remind, eks-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl died June 16 at age 87.
