These pictures only capture part of this long day, believe it or not, and there are 70 of them.  They are in no particular order or grouping.  We see Mme. Secretary once again celebrating Twin Day with Chancellor Merkel (I believe that every time they have met, they have matched).  We also see her with a series of Foreign Ministers, including Guido Westerwelle (Germany), William Jefferson Hague, (UK), Trinidad Jimenez (Spain), Kevin Rudd (Australia), as well as with NATO Secretary General Rasmussen, and many others. I am always impressed by the way she puts out such a friendly, smiling, happy face for us.  She wins friends for us everywhere she goes.

Thank you, Mme. Secretary for working so tirelessly for us.

Remarks With German Chancellor Angela Merkel Before Their Meeting

SECRETARY CLINTON: It is wonderful to be back in Berlin and to have this opportunity to meet with the Chancellor to discuss a number of issues that are of great importance to both of us.

I appreciate that NATO is meeting here in Berlin because Germany is such an essential partner in NATO and the work that was done at the Lisbon Summit to chart the way forward for NATO is going to provide the strategic direction that we are seeking to implement.

We work together in Afghanistan. We are committed to following through to achieve the mutual objective of working toward a world without nuclear weapons. We are also sharing the same goal which is to see the end of the Qadhafi regime in Libya. And we are contributing in many ways in order to see that goal realized. We are very much looking forward to the Chancellor’s visit at President Obama’s invitation to Washington in early June. And she will be receiving our highest civilian honor at that time, the Medal of Freedom.

Chancellor, thank you again for welcoming me back to Berlin. I look forward to welcoming you to Washington. And for all those inquiring minds – the Chancellor and I did not consult on the color of our jackets today, but great minds think alike.

They did it AGAIN!  I know that jacket looks blue in this photo, but we all know that jacket,  and it’s purple.  Hillary and Angela, the Bobbsey Twins!

The subject, of course, was Egypt. Mme. Secretary met with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel (who for at least the third time got the color memo), Turkish FM Davutoglu, Catherine Ashton, the EU Rep for Foreign Affairs (who got the velvet trim memo), and, of course, Russian FM Lavrov. Additional bilaterals were held with German FM Guido Westerwelle and Hamid Karzai.

Here’s the Big Party! Many of us remember this night 20 years ago for its stunning drama. Tonight, in Berlin, in front of the beautiful Brandenburg Gate, they celebrated once more with drama. This time a symbolic wall fell like dominoes, just the way the Eastern Bloc fell away from their harsh governments 20 years ago.

Secretary Clinton was there with dignitaries and heads of state several of whom played a part in the Fall of the Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Revolution. Angela Merkel, now Chancellor of Germany, crossed that night. Nicholas Sarkozy was one of many who took a pickaxe to the wall. Lech Walensa helped inspire the East Germans with his Solidarnosc movement in Poland. And, of course, there was Mikhail Gorbachev – the man who ordered the borders opened and changed history.
