Council of Europe Secretary General: All Europeans have a reason to Celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall


Statement of Council of Europe Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić  on the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

“All Europeans have a reason to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall. People won freedom and democracy through peaceful revolution – and by efforts in the east and west to unite our continent. Thirty years later, Europe is economically and politically stronger, as well as culturally more vibrant and diverse. But peace and prosperity cannot be taken for granted. Our efforts to forge European unity are as important as ever and so are the institutions created to safeguard human rights, democracy and the rule of law. “
