Belgium: Scar on Europe's face — NATO marks 30th anniv. of Berlin Wall's fall

NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg, alongside German Permanent Representative to the military alliance, Hans-Dieter Lucas, celebrated the 30th anniversary of Berlin Wall's fall. The ceremony took place near the NATO headquarters in Brussels, on Wednesday. «The Berlin Wall was a scar in the face of Europe. Through gun towers and guard dogs, it tried to keep people in, and ideas out. But it... Еще failed. Because our vision and values were stronger,» said Stoltenberg. «Freedom, democracy, and human dignity. The same values that unite us today inspired ordinary people 30 years ago to achieve something extraordinary», he added. The Berlin wall was erected in 1961 and divided East and West Berlin until 1989. Mandatory credit: NATO Mandatory credit: NATO
