President Komorowski on activity for peace in Ukraine

  |   Meeting on activity for peace in Ukraine Meeting on activity for peace in Ukraine President Komorowski on activity for peace in Ukraine

Poland asked NATO to urgently convene a meeting of the North Atlantic Council, said President Bronislaw Komorowski after meeting PM Donald Tusk, Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski and Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak on Saturday.


Later, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen wrote on Twitter that the Council would meet in Brussels on Sunday.


"After President Putin's request to Russian upper chamber for permission to use military force in entire Ukraine the situation has become very dramatic," said Komorowski after his meeting with government leaders. "The meeting made appropriate decisions that are decisions of the Polish state," he added.


Poland asked NATO to urgently convene the North Atlantic Council under Article 4 of the Washington Treaty providing for allied consultations in case of threat.


"We can feel threatened by potential use of Russian armed forces in the territory of Poland's neighbour - Ukraine. I am certain that we will manage to convince other countries that may feel threatened because of the neighbourhood and I know that a decision will be made fast," Bronislaw Komorowski went on.


He informed that the EU Council will meet Monday.


Also Monday, at 8.30 a.m., there will be a meeting of the National Security Council (RBN) in Warsaw, president Komorowski informed. "The aim of this meeting will be to inform the public opinion and political parties about the situation, about scenarios under preparation by the Polish state to deal with various circumstances, both pessimistic and less pessimistic," he explained.


Both himself and PM Donald Tusk and Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski had made contact with "a number of important personalities in Ukraine and in the Western world," Komorowski disclosed. "I talked with Mr Turchynov, I was briefed by him (on the situation), conveyed words of solidarity and encouraged him to take measures designed to stabilise the situation in Ukraine," he added.


His foreign policy adviser Jaromir Sokolowski said later that Komorowski had assured acting President Oleksander Turchynov "of Polish support for and solidarity with Ukraine in the face of growing Russian pressure in Crimea." Komorowski also condemned attempts at destabilising the political situation in Ukraine and voiced "unequivocal support for Ukrainian efforts to preserve territorial integrity." He described recent developments as a threat to stability of entire region. (PAP)
