Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at the meeting with the inhabitants of Rzeszów

“The security of Poland is the security of families, the security of villages and towns, the security of borders – these are our main challenges,” said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during his meeting with the inhabitants of Rzeszów.

Speaking about security in Poland, the Prime Minister pointed out that the current government has made the state strong for the strong, and more understanding for the weak and for those in need of help.

“We have proposed a new social contract, which is precisely that we want to give security to families, to the weaker ones, and also to give security with regard to the quality of justice,” said the Prime Minister. He added that the government “focuses on the safety of broadly understood families, i.e. also the safety of pensioners, children, social and financial security”.

Relocation of refugees

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also referred to the Summit of the European Council held in Brussels on Friday in the context of urban and rural security. As he said, the consistent attitude of the government has contributed to the “great victory” in the relocation of refugees. The Prime Minister stressed that “the sovereign state is to decide who enters the territory of the Republic of Poland, when and on what terms”.

Polish-Israeli joint declaration

The signed Polish-Israeli declaration, which contains information on the lack of consent to blame Poland or the entire Polish nation for the atrocities of the Nazis and their collaborators, “is a document worked out as a result of hard negotiations, which will be the weapon of Poland to fight for truth on the international arena,” said the Prime Minister.

Continuing, the Prime Minister pointed out that “the attempt to convince us of a sense of guilt and ideology that was completely out of step with historical truth is to convince Poles that we were complicit in the Holocaust and in the crimes of World War II”.

The Prime Minister pointed out that the signed declaration is a great Polish victory on the international arena, where “our narrative, our story about the World War II, has been recognised for the first time on the international arena by such a high-ranking act”.

Rural development

During the meeting with the inhabitants of Rzeszów, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also referred to the solutions for rural areas, which will be presented in the next two weeks by the Minister of Agriculture Jan Ardanowski.

As he stressed, it is planned to further liberalise the provisions relating to direct sales of local products by farmers. “Soon we will liberalise this law even further, so that people can sell their own products – butter, bread, jams, mushrooms, preserves, sausages – as widely as possible, so that what is good and Polish can reach the tables directly, without any intermediaries of any kind,” declared the Prime Minister.
