Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski called on Ukrainian ruling and opposition politicians to resolve the issue of allowing Ukraine's imprisoned former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to undergo treatment abroad, describing this as the last barrier on the road to the Western world.
He said this at a meeting of the European group of the Trilateral Commission in Krakow on Friday, the Polish Press Agency (PAP) reported.
"We're appealing, first and foremost, to the authorities, as well as to the opposition, which is also responsible for overcoming or not overcoming this important, but probably the last major barrier on Ukraine's road to the Western world," Komorowski said, urging the Ukrainian authorities to "make decisive steps to allow the former prime minister to travel abroad for treatment."
He added that Poland does not question the decision of the Ukrainian courts, but noted that "human rights are and will always be the foundation of the EU."
Komorowski said that the signing of the Association Agreement would not end, but would intensify Ukraine's path to EU norms and standards, as well as change the balance of power in this part of the continent, Ukrinform informed.
He said that the signing of the Association Agreement with Ukraine and the initialing of respective agreements with Moldova and Georgia reflected the national interests of Poland, Europe and the Western world in general.
