Polish President and German Bundesrat head meet in Warsaw
Polish-German bilateral cooperation, Ukraine and European security in the context of the July NATO summit in Warsaw were the topics of Wednesday's meeting in Warsaw between Polish President Andrzej Duda and German Bundesrat head Stanislaw Tillich.
"The talks centred on Polish-German bilateral relations, the situation in Ukraine as well as security in the region in the context of the Ukrainian conflict and the approaching NATO summit in Warsaw", PAP was told on Wednesday by Marcin Przydacz from the President's Office.
He added that President Duda had outlined Poland's security policy priorities in the context of the Warsaw NATO summit.
Duda and Tillich also discussed energy issues. "The president presented Poland's reservations about the Nord Stream 2 project as a political project running contrary to the position of the European Commission, breaking up European solidarity and being incompatible with the goals of an energy union", Przydacz said.
In the context of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline construction, Tillich underlined that Germany was interested in maintaining good relations with Poland, according to the Polish official. "He acknowledged that the Nord Stream 2 issue posed a certain problem in those relations. He expressed understanding for Poland's argumentation", Marcin Przydacz said.
This year's 25th anniversary of the Polish-German treaty on good neighbourhood and friendly cooperation was also mentioned by the Polish president and the Bundesrat head, Marcin Przydacz told PAP. (PAP)
