TALLINN, May 5 (Itar-Tass) — Estonian President Hendrik Ilves will not take part in the Central and East European summit due to be in Yalta, the presidential office reported.
The office confirmed that Ilves had been invited to take part in the summit in Ukraine. “But the date coincides with a conference, which will be held in Tallinn and devoted to the memory of President Lennart Meri. That is why President Ilves announced about his non-involvement in the Yalta summit,” the office said.
The office also said, “President Ilves expressed concern about Ukraine’s attitude towards political opponents.” According to experts, this is the real reason for giving up the invitation in the Yalta summit.
