Prime Minister Beata Szydło at COP21

The Polish Prime Minister participated in Monday’s meeting of the heads of six states and governments whose aim was to give mandates to negotiators for development of specific solutions in the text of the treaty on climate. The heads of all states of the world are present in Paris. Of course, we could not possibly miss that – said Prime Minister Beata Szydło during the briefing before the UN Climate Summit. The head of the government added that Poland will sign the treaty provided that the interests of its economy will be protected. It must also take into account other expectations presented on Monday in Paris by the Polish Prime Minister and Minister of Environment. All the states of the world must take part in the climate policy, they must take responsibility for changes which will be introduced, taking into account the interests of individual economies – noted the Prime Minister.

A series of bilateral meetings

The participation in the Paris summit was an opportunity for Prime Minister Beata Szydło to meet the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk. The head of the government also met the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claud Juncker. I start this day with meetings which, in my opinion, are very important for the future of the changes proposed by the Polish government. I will be meeting the most important people in the EU who may support our decisions. We can ensure that joint solutions protecting the interests of the Polish economy and the economy of other European states will be protected – said the Prime Minister.
