Poland is trying, within the framework of the EU mandate, to propose solutions which will be a compromise said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He recalled his recent talks with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May and the EU negotiator for Brexit, Michel Barnier – and added that for our country the most important thing is how Polish citizens and entrepreneurs will be treated in the United Kingdom. The Head of Government pointed out that it is important to develop a proper agreement between the EU and the United Kingdom.

According to the Prime Minister, there is now a deadlock on Brexit. The Head of Government has noted that some politicians are irresponsible about this issue and, through their harsh statements, an agreement may not be reached at the current summit.

The European Council will also discuss the issue of migration and related conclusions negotiated at the end of June. The Member States then agreed – as Poland wanted – to move away from the mechanism of forced relocation of migrants. The Head of Government stressed that, thanks to the success of the negotiations achieved at that time, for the first time in a long time we are on the right track to find a positive solution.
