President of RP meets with the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Denmark

On 22 April, 2008, President of the Republic Poland Mr Lech Kaczyński met with Prime Minister of Denmark Mr Anders Fogh Rasmussen who came on a visit to Poland . The meeting was an occasion for an exchange of views on the current shape of Polish-Danish relations, ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, as well as on cooperation of Poland and Denmark on the EU forum. The President of RP and the Prime Minister of Denmark both referred to the situation in Georgia emphasising their full support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state. In the discussion, also the subject of cooperation of the two countries was visited in the context of the 14th Session of the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the 4th Meeting of Parties to the Kyoto Protocol to be held in Poznan in December this year, and of the forthcoming session of the UNFCCC in Copenhagen in 2009.

At the joint press conference, the President of RP made the following points:

”The discussion with Mr Prime Minister was for me very interesting, as it always is, and this is not the first time we are meeting. We spoke about recent developments, about the Bucharest Summit where Prime Minister acting as a representative of the Kingdom of Denmark took a position in favour of MAP for Ukraine and Georgia. We discussed the current situation in Georgia and the steps that should be taken. We spoke about the events in store for Poland and Denmark this December and next year respectively, or to be more precise the events in store for Poznan and Copenhagen in relation to the climate conference. The forthcoming Poznan conference and the ensuing soon after Copenhagen conference usher in a process that will have great significance on a global scale. Obviously, we are not in a position to foresee whether the whole effort is going to end in success but if it should this would be success on an unimaginable scale. In this connection, I advocate a possible closest cooperation with Denmark. I privately hope that I will be able to open the Poznan conference this December and I am also confident that it will be crowned with success on the organizational side. Prime Minister Rasmussen also looks forward to a very close cooperation in this regard. Finally, we were discussing new EU institutions and the situation that will arise provided that the reform treaties enter into force which is very likely. The Parliament of Denmark and Poland are indeed on the eve of ratification. I assured my Guest that in the case of Poland all that is left to be done is to have my signature affixed, in a sense the ratification process is over. I presume that I will sign concurrently a law arising out of the political agreement on the subject, and on the same day I will instantly sign the instruments of ratification of the European Treaty.”
