 The Argentine Government regrets the death on Friday 16 June of former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who played a fundamental role in the German reunification process and was a determined promoter of European reconciliation.

Chancellor Kohl made an Official Visit to Argentina in September 1996, during which he held a meeting with the then Argentine President and also delivered a speech to a joint session of the Argentine Congress.

The Argentine Government conveys its condolences to the German Government and people, and ratifies, at this time of mourning, its firm commitment to forge strong bonds of cooperation and friendship between the two nations.
