Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at briefing with government members on the situation in Belarus

The difficult situation in Belarus was the subject of the afternoon briefing of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki with members of the government. As a neighbouring country, Poland is currently monitoring the situation beyond our eastern border. In the morning, the Head of the Polish Government has sent a letter to Charles Michael, President of the European Council, and Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, in which he called for an extraordinary European Council meeting. Prime Minister Morawiecki also held a telephone conversation with EU leaders, during which he pointed out that as the countries of the United Europe we have a duty to act in solidarity with the Belarusian people.

Briefing with members of the Polish government

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki met with government representatives to discuss the unstable situation in Belarus and further steps that Poland should take in the current situation. Apart from the Head of the Government, the meeting was attended by Jadwiga Emilewicz, Piotr Gliński and Jacek Sasin, Deputy Prime Ministers, as well as Jacek Czaputowicz, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Maciej Wąsik, Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration.

Our country is not indifferent to the ongoing events and urges EU countries to support the Belarusian community. A possible escalation of the conflict poses a serious threat to security, both for Poland and the European Union as a whole.
