Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush mourned the death of former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl on Friday, describing him as "a true friend of freedom" and "one of the greatest leaders in post-War Europe."

"Helmut hated war —​ but he detested totalitarianism even more," the former president said in a statement.

"Working closely with my very good friend to help achieve a peaceful end to the Cold War and the unification of Germany within NATO will remain one of the great joys of my life."
