Germany could play a key role in ‘Marshall Plan’ for Ukraine – Klimkin


Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has again asked Western countries to provide more support to Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. He said that Ukraine needs a broader assistance plan, a kind of “Marshall Plan,” a key role in which could be played by Germany.
He said this in an interview with Express, Deutsche Welle reported on Thursday.
“The United States played a key role in the Marshall Plan after World War II, and now this historical mission could be led by Germany,” Klimkin said.
He called on Western countries to actively support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. “I think it would be logical to provide Ukraine with technical and military aid to fight terrorism, as in the case of Iraq,” Klimkin said.
He stressed that such assistance was in the interests of the European Union itself.
As reported, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will arrive on a one-day working visit to Kyiv on August 23 at the invitation of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. This visit will be the first since the beginning of the political crisis in Ukraine in late 2013.
