Obama in Berlin - Speech on Transatlantic Partnership

Barack Obama, presidential candidate of the U.S. Democratic Party on his trip to Berlin / Germany, addressing more than 200.000 people in front of the famous Pillar of Victory (Siegessaeule).
His keynote speech on foreign politics has been transmitted live by CNN, Al-Jazeera and German TV (ARD). When the German cameras were already switched off, Al-Jazeera and CNN continued with background information and interviews.

There's even some time for German culture left:
German TV: We close punctually (German "Feierabend").
At the city hall: Tradition of signing the Golden Guest Book
("Wer schreibt, der bleibt" or "Writing is staying forever").

"We must renew the goal of a world
without nuclear weapons."

"Europe must stand by the U.S. in
bringing stability to Afghanistan."

"This is the moment when we must all
come together to save this planet"

The whole text of Obama's Berlin Speech is now available from The New York Observer.
