He pledged to continue "to shine a light on the Communist regime's abuses" and urged Chinese President Xi Jinping to release the thousands of political prisoners who remain jailed or can not leave China, including Liu Xia's brother Liu Hui. "If I'm dead, it'll all be done with", she told exiled Chinese writer Liao Yiwu, who released an audio clip of their phone conversation the following month. "I hope from now on her life is peaceful and happy". In May, the German government said it would welcome Liu after a recording was released of her crying and saying she had lost hope of being able to leave China.
"It is expected to land in Finland at 2.15pm local time (7.15pm Beijing time) from where Liu will get a connecting flight to Berlin".
"While Liu Xia is free, our work is not complete", he said.
The Chinese government has not taken any responsibility for Liu Xiaobo's death or Liu Xia's illness.More news: Wimbledon 2018 -- Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon semifinals
China on Tuesday allowed Liu Xia to fly to Berlin, ending an eight-year house arrest that drew worldwide criticism and made the soft-spoken, chain-smoking 57-year-old poet with a shaven head a tragic icon known around the world. Wu said he spoke to Liu Xia's older brother, Liu Tong.
Liu's departure came during a visit by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to Berlin, where he met German Chancellor Angela Merkel, although a Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman denied any "association or link between this incident and the visit".
To avoid China's fierce online censorship, a number of Chinese netizens subtly paid their respects to Merkel as well as to Germany by writing a short thank you note on their Weibo accounts, without mentioning Liu Xia's name.
He was sentenced to 11 years' imprisonment on charges of inciting subversion of state power.

In May, dozens of the world's leading writers and artists, from Michael Chabon to Paul Auster and Khaled Hosseini, called on China to release her to seek medical treatment overseas. "Sister has already left Beijing for Europe at noon to start her new life". Handed an 11-year jail sentence for fraud in 2013, Liu Hui was later released but remained monitored, according to friends of the family. Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post later said it had also independently confirmed her departure.
Liu Hui is in China.
China has previously criticized calls by Western governments for Liu's release, saying that foreign countries were making "improper remarks" over what Beijing sees as a domestic affair.
Liu Xia was never charged but was largely confined to her Beijing home.
"In the last two years, our parents and her husband died one by one", Liu Hui said. "Dying is easier than living - there is nothing simpler for me than to protest with death".More news: Trump's Supreme Court pick said presidents shouldn't be investigated, Schumer said
In the past year since her husband's death, authorities continued to closely guard her home, allowing only a few friends and family members to speak to her on the phone or visit her. Liu Xia is reportedly suffering from severe depression and a range of physical ailments, including a heart condition.
