Mexico and Germany are working to build harmony, brotherhood and solidarity in favor of humanity, said Enrique Peña Nieto after his tour of the “Maya: the language of beauty” exhibition in Germany.

In the presence of German president Joachim Gauck, Peña Nieto said that in the past a wall separated a country but “reason and social development made it possible for it to be demolished and for the great German nation to be united.”

Accompanied by the Secretary of Culture, Rafael Tovar y de Teresa, at the Martin Gropius Bau Museum, the Mexican president said that this spirit is what allows this exhibition of Maya culture to be brought to Berlin.

Peña Nieto thanked the German government for their support in putting together the exhibition, which includes 300 pieces, some of which are more than 2,000 years old.

The Mexican president said that the exhibition celebrates a civilization, which is admired for their great advances in technology, astronomy and architecture.

“Mexico shows the best from its past in this exhibition and with it the Mexico-German Dual Year 2016-2017 begins,” Peña Nieto highlighted.

Gauck said that the opening of the exhibition happens at the same time as the Mexican Year in Germany, while in the summer, the German Year in Mexico will begin “to strengthen the bridges that exist between the two countries even more.”

For Germans, the exhibition will be “an intense encounter with the Maya civilization and all of its riches,” the German president said.
