Statement on the Death of Nelson Mandela

Brussels  |   6 Dec 2013

Nelson Mandela

The world has lost the most inspiring figure of the last century. Relentless in resistance, extraordinarily generous in victory, Nelson Mandela never put himself ahead of his ideals. He endured long imprisonment without bitterness. As South Africa's president, he wielded great power but he never clung to it. He knew when to compromise, and when not to. His wisdom made him the hero of South Africa, of the continent and of the entire world. Long live his wisdom.
