President Andrzej Duda on Thursday said the Three Seas summit had built a unique but very vital connection between Central European countries. These countries want to make up for lost time in terms of their development, he added.

 

Representatives from 12 countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary) - including 10 presidents - took part in the 2nd Three Seas summit in Warsaw on Thursday.

 

At a joint press conference to mark the end of the summit, Andrzej Duda thanked his Croatian counterpart, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, for co-organizing the meeting, as well as being its co-host.

 

The President stressed the summit had been significant. It built "a unique but very vital connection between the Central European countries, which very well understand their position, their situation, including in economic terms, as well as their shared history", Andrzej Duda explained.

 

The President pointed out that the Three Seas countries - with the sole exception of Austria - had been stuck for many years behind the Iron Curtain.

 

They know they have fallen behind the West. But ever since regaining independence, and then joining the European Union, that great European community, they have been systematically regaining lost ground.

 

"We want to very strongly focus on this", Andrzej Duda concluded. 

 

The next Three Seas Initiative summit will take place in the Romanian capital Bucharest next year, Polish President Andrzej Duda announced on Thursday. (PAP)
