Foreign Minister Westerwelle on Ukraine - missed chance

13.11.2013 - Press release

Foreign Minister Westerwelle issued the following statement today (13 November) in Abu Dhabi, whilst on his visit to the United Arab Emirates:

We hope that the EU Association Agreement with Ukraine will be signed at the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius in two weeks.

For this to happen, Ukraine must fulfil the relevant conditions agreed upon in the EU.

We regret that the Ukrainian parliament was not able to reach an agreement regarding new legislation on medical treatment abroad today.

This means that a chance to find a solution to the Tymoshenko case has been missed. There is little time left now.
