Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski has expressed his hope that Ukraine will find a compromise solution to the problem of ex-Premier Yulia Tymoshenko, , which is an obstacle to the signing of an association agreement at the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius in November.
"We hope that the November summit will be successful both for Ukraine and the EU. We very much hope that Ukraine will find a way to remove the crucial obstacle to the signing of the Association Agreement, which is the case of Yulia Tymoshenko, the imprisonment of the former prime minister of Ukraine," Komorowski's official Web site quoted him as saying.
According to the Web site, when talking with Polish journalists during his visit to New York the Polish president said that in this situation they needed to find "a reasonable compromise among all parties involved."
The upcoming Eastern Partnership summit and the prospects for the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement were discussed during a meeting of Komorowski, the leadership of the European Council, the presidents of a number of EU countries, and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, the Web site of the Polish president reported.
During this meeting Komorowski said that the preparations for the signing of this document were going well, but not all the problems had been solved.
