During a working breakfast on Tuesday, Bronisław Komorowski, the President of Poland, and Petr Nečas, the Czech Prime Minister, discussed issues pertaining to the European Union, the Eastern Partnership, the economy, and the situation in Northern Africa.


"The Czech government demonstrates that it thoroughly comprehends common European policy concerning the relations with our eastern neighbours, particularly the Eastern Partnership," Komorowski remarked.


Komorowski and Nečas discussed relations with the EU’s eastern neighbours, as well as the recent events in Northern Africa and the degree to which they "constitute a challenge for the EU, especially in light of the upcoming Polish presidency over the Community."


"The peoples of east-central Europe have a moral right and obligation to discuss the breeze of freedom which now sweeps across Northern Africa and which came as a surprise to the Western world," Komorowski said.


In his opinion, the relations between the Czech Republic and Poland are excellent "in strictly political terms and remarkably attractive on the economic level."

 

After finishing breakfast, Komorowski travelled to Litvínov, a town in the north-western part of the Czech Republic where there is a Unipetrol refinery (a petrochemical holding). PKN Orlen has the majority share in Unipetrol.


Bronisław Komorowski believes that the involvement of the PKN Orlen Group in the energy sector of the economy is of vast significance for the future of Czech-Polish cooperation. "Czech-Polish cooperation in this field could be a part of the activities aimed at diversifying energy sources and routes for transporting fuels," Komorowski stated. He also mentioned a system for transmitting gas across the Czech-Polish border, as – in his opinion – constructing a gas interconnector is not merely a political decision but also an opportunity to develop energy-related cooperation between the two countries.


Employees of Unipetrol presented Komorowski with a turbine blade to "give him driving force" and a T-shirt of HC Benzina Litvínov, a Czech Extraliga hockey team sponsored by Unipetrol.


Subsequently, Bronisław Komorowski met with Poles living in the Czech Republic and awarded distinctions to Czech fire fighters who helped Poles during last year's flood. The two-day visit ended with Komorowski attending a concert of Aga Zaryan, a Polish jazz singer.
