17th Central European Summit

President Bronisław Komorowski

The Royal Castle in Warsaw hosted discussions of 20 heads of state including, in addition to the Polish leader, presidents of Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Croatia, Austria and Lithuania.

At the 17th Central European Summit the belief prevailed that the countries that had recently become members of the EU and NATO should support EU and NATO aspirations of the EU neighbouring countries, said President Bronisław Komorowski.

At a press conference at the Royal Castle, Bronisław Komorowski reminded that the summit would end with an evening meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama.

"Speakers were clearly convinced that the process started with changes of 1989-90 should continue despite the changed circumstances", said the President, summing up the summit session.

Bronisław Komorowski admitted that "there are new challenges, new circumstances" related to the crisis in the EU, as well as the "Arab spring".

"But the dominant voice was the belief that the old plans, old goals had not lost, nor should they lose their validity, and that Europe, particularly those countries which themselves had recently entered the European and NATO structures, should support the EU neighbouring countries with aspirations to enter these important institutions of the Western world", said Komorowski.

He added that he meant the countries behind the eastern EU border, as well as the states of former Yugoslavia.

The President also announced that the next summit of Central Europe leaders would be held in Kiev.
