Mutual economic, trade, and political cooperation, along with the priorities of the Polish presidency over the EU, were the subjects of Tuesday's talks in Bratislava between the Polish President, Bronisław Komorowski, and the Slovak President, Ivan Gašparovič. Also discussed were the issues of energy security and the new EU budget for 2014-2020.

Bronisław Komorowski and his wife are on a two-day official visit to Slovakia.

Komorowski and Gašparovič, who led the plenary talks of the Polish and Slovak delegations during the morning, expressed their satisfaction with the highly satisfactory mutual relations. At a joint press conference after the meeting with Gašparovič, Komorowski stated that the relations between Poland and Slovakia are at an "absolutely above-standard level."

The talks also focused on the crisis in the European Union and the question of helping those countries that have found themselves involved in this situation. Poland takes over the presidency of the EU Council on 1 July.

Gašparovič stressed that, from the point of view of Bratislava, "The most important issues in the coming six months of the EU Presidency will be energy security and the outlook for the 2014-2020 budget."

 

On his part, President Komorowski congratulated Slovakia on its "successful presidency of the Visegrad Group, which resulted in the announcement concerning the forming of the Visegrad Battle Group, important also from the Polish point of view, the contribution to the progress in European integration and the security area."

Komorowski reminded everyone that the issue of safety is "an important area, which will be included in the priorities of the Polish Presidency over the EU."

Komorowski also spoke with satisfaction about the "far-reaching convergence of views (with Slovakia) on the prospects of the countries to the east of the EU when it comes to their participation in the integration of Europe." He also remarked that the "third priority of Poland in terms of its presidency of the EU Council will be an active Eastern policy with emphasis on the importance of the Eastern Partnership".

Komorowski also referred to the investments in infrastructure and communications that are mutual for Poland and Slovakia, such as Via Carpatia. He expressed the hope that "the current plans will be fully accomplished: the gas interconnector on the Polish and Slovakia border, as well as the completion of the Bielsko-Biała – Żylina highway."

After meeting Gašparovič, Komorowski had an official breakfast with the Prime Minister, Iveta Radičová. Later he planned to meet the Mayor of Bratislava, Milan Ftacnik, the representatives of the Polish community and the Head of Slovak Parliament (National Council), Richard Sulík.

On Wednesday, the second day of the visit, the presidents of Poland and Slovakia will laid a wreath at the monument to the victims of the struggle for freedom in the Bratislava Devín, commemorating those who died while illegally crossing the border between former Czechoslovakia and Austria.
