Science in decisions and warmth for people, that's how I perceived her long and challenging mandate. I have had the honor of standing face to face with Mrs Merkel from many of the responsibilities I assumed, and even though the talks have never been easy, I have always been sure that she will do her best to find solutions," wrote Ciolos on Facebook.
According to him, Angela Merkel is a "remarkable" politician who has shaped the role of chancellor of one of the world's most powerful economies.
