President Komorowski said he was speaking about a draft which in the opinion of Ukrainian journalists and opposition could limit freedom of speech in Ukraine. Recently the draft was withdrawn from the Ukrainian parliament.


President Yanukovych told the Polish head of state that the bill would not be debated and the current law would not be significantly changed.


President Komorowski stressed "that it was always easier to support Ukraine's EU bid if it met democratic standards".

According to presidential minister Jaromir Sokolowski, President Karzai thanked President Komorowski "for Poland's engagement in Afghanistan".
