President of the Republic of Poland meets Ambassadors

On 5 December, 2007, President of the Republic of Poland Lech Kaczynski met in the Presidential Palace the Ambassadors of EU Member States and the Ambassadors of Croatia, Turkey and Ukraine.

The President addressed the assembled Guests with the following words:

„Ladies and Gentlemen,

First and foremost, let me welcome all of you, Ladies and Gentlemen, coming from the EU Members States and from the countries which, as we unceasingly hope, will become part of the Union in a foreseeable future. This is not the first meeting of this kind. However, this meeting is taking place under slightly altered conditions in Poland: after the elections. Elections and a change of government is a natural thing in democracy. In Poland, as I believe, they will bring no changes to the fundamental strategic tenets of our foreign policy. Obviously, Poland will continue to be a member of the European Union which is probably the most important point of reference to the country. The other such point is the North Atlantic Treaty. That being said, Poland is also a strategic partner of some countries which neither belong to the EU of today nor to NATO. In particular, I am referring here to Ukraine but we are likewise very advanced on our road to a strategic partnership with Georgia and enjoy very good relations with Azerbaijan. In other words: the European Union continues to be the main point of reference for Poland but Poland has also her own concept for the development of the EU. These are the issues that I will be happy to discuss with you in a moment, the way we do every year.”
