In Germany, they thanked the 41st US President George W. Bush and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev on October 3, the Day of German Unity. German reunification would have been unthinkable without the support of the USSR, the USA, Great Britain and France. This opinion was expressed to RIA Novosti by the vice-president of the Bundestag Wolfgang Kubicki from the Free Democratic Party (FDP) faction.

“German reunification is unthinkable without the support of the four victorious powers in World War II. The Germans on both sides of the border at that time owe much, above all, to George W. Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev. It was a happy coincidence that world history has opened this short window for the unification of the two Germanies, ”said Kubiki.

Germany on Saturday, October 3, celebrates its 30th national holiday – Day of German Unity. At midnight on October 3, 1990, the state institutions of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) ceased to work, which ceased to exist. The territory of the former socialist republic was included in the FRG, according to the treaty on the unification of Germany on August 31, 1990.

The “Treaty on the Final Settlement with regard to Germany” (the “Two Plus Four” Treaty) was signed in 1990 by the GDR, West Germany, the USSR, the USA, France and Great Britain. He legally consolidated “Germany's full sovereignty over its internal and external affairs.” According to its terms, the allies in World War II renounced their rights in relation to Germany.
