Poland is counting on the German Presidency of the European Council to take an active attitude

On 26 September 2006, Andrzej Krawczyk, Under Secretary of State at the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland, received the foreign and security policy advisor to the German Chancellor, Christoph Heusgen.

In the course of the meeting, the state of preparations for a Weimar Triangle summit scheduled for 5 December 2006 was discussed. It was agreed that the following round of consultations on the matter would be held in Warsaw in November 2006, according to the German-French-Polish formula. Furthermore, the current state of Polish-German relations was discussed. It is the partners’ opinion that Polish-German dialogue needs to be directed also towards those areas of cooperation that require the two countries to work closely together, both bilaterally and internationally. It was pointed out that energy security was a field for such co-operation in Europe today.

Christoph Heusgen presented the priorities of Germany’s forthcoming Presidency of the European Council. Minister Andrzej Krawczyk stressed that Poland was counting on the German Presidency’s active attitude and initiatives in the field of external relations, particularly as regards the Eastern dimension. The advisor to the German Chancellor also offered information on the results of the French-Russian-German consultations held on 23 September 2006 at Compiegne on the outskirts of Paris. Major international developments were also discussed, notably the issue of Iran, the situation in the Middle East, in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in the Balkans.
