The German Foreign Minister said on Monday in Berlin
"I congratulate Poroshenko on an impressive result of the elections," Frank-Walter Steinmeier said.
According to him, the voters in Ukraine were clear about "the completion of confrontation, chaos and corruption" and the national unity.
As the German diplomat noted, challenging tasks are waiting for the newly elected President of Ukraine. He emphasized the importance of a dialogue with the country's east, because without this the political and economic stabilization cannot be achieved. Given this, Steinmeier supported Poroshenko's plans first to visit Ukraine's east.
The German Foreign Minister expressed the expectation that all OSCE member states recognize the assessment of the OSCE observation mission.
