Angela Merkel meets Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, Belarus opposition leader visits Berlin wall

The pair discussed the plight of the Belarusian people following August's disputed election that left Alexander Lukashenko still in power. Tsikhanouskaya also visited the Berlin Wall, calling it a "symbol of freedom."

Belarus' exiled opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya met German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday, appealing for help for her country, which has seen weeks of protests following the disputed August 9 election.

"I am very grateful to Germany and all the German parties who are so supportive of the Belarusian people in their fight for freedom, in their fight for new honest and transparent elections," Tsikhanouskaya said after the meeting, which lasted 45 minutes.
