Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski talked with Pope Francis in Rome on Saturday about issues including the situation in Ukraine, reconciliation among nations and Poland's freedom.
 
"Everyone is recalling their own memories of places linked to John Paul II in Poland and all that we experienced in those days, but I also hope many of us are thinking about the future, thinking about what 'the pope of Polish freedom' will give us for subsequent decades of Polish freedom," President Komorowski told journalists after his private audience with Pope Francis on Saturday.
 
The Polish president's 25-minute conversation with the pope touched on reconciliation among people and nations, Komorowski said. "Such reconciliation also means our special concern about what is happening in Ukraine," he added.
Komorowski and Pope Francis also talked about the pope's visit to Poland, planned for 2016, for the World Youth Day event in Krakow.
 
"The Holy Father views Poland as a country that also on its 25th anniversary of freedom demonstrates something that is valuable in an international dimension - the ability to conduct dialogue above divisions and willingness to show community-oriented behaviour," the president said.
 
The pope interpreted the presence of former Polish Presidents Lech Walesa and Aleksander Kwasniewski at the canonisation of Polish-born Pope John Paul II as a sign of such community feeling, Komorowski emphasised. (PAP)
