Еще me, in which there are mixed feelings of extreme happiness, and at the same time, remorse.» He went on to say, «I am aware that the results during my government were well received by some, but I recognize that on the other hand, I have also let down other countrymen. To them I ask for forgiveness.» Fujimori thanked Kuczynski «for this magnanimous gesture that has consoled me» and which « which in turns makes me committed to this new stage that opens in my life to firmly support your call to reconciliation.» Fujimori was pardoned by Kuczynski on December 25 after the ex-leader was admitted to hospital the previous day for what his doctors said was heart arrhythmia.
