🕐 1 min read


COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush is to receive an award from the European Parliament next week as part of events marking the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Bush, who was in office in 1989 when the wall was toppled, is being presented the Robert Schuman Medal on Monday to mark his commitment to a secure and peaceful Europe. The ceremony is part of a day-long program at Bush’s presidential library at Texas A&M University.

Schuman, a former French foreign minister and prime minister, is considered a founder of the European Union.

Bush will be the first American to receive the award, which originated in 1986 to recognize leaders who have advanced the cause of peace and human values. Other recipients have included Pope John Paul II.
