Germany: progress in Tymoshenko case is possible
Spokesman for the German Department of Foreign Affairs Andreas Peschke says his country is ready to admit former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko for treatment, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.
"We are hoping for a speedy resolution to the case of Yulia Tymoshenko and we remain ready to make a contribution. Our offer regarding treatment in Germany remains. In this sense we are ready to act at short notice, if necessary," Andreas Peschke said at a briefing in Berlin.
The German foreign ministry representative noted that the release of former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko this April showed that a pardon is an option. "We hope there will be progress in the Tymoshenko case," he added.
Andreas Peschke said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle will soon visit Ukraine. "During his visit the issue of Yulia Tymoshenko will be discussed along with possible solutions," the German foreign ministry representative said.
