F. W. de Klerk and Nelson Mandela


F.W. DeClerk and Nelson Mandela

“From their different points of departure, Mandela and de Klerk have reached agreement on the principles for a transition to a new political order based on the tenet of one man-one vote. By looking ahead to South African reconciliation instead of back at the deep wounds of the past, they have shown personal integrity and great political courage.”

From the statement announcing the Nobel Peace Prize for 1993.
