Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Polish citizens will not suffer as a result of Brexit

During the discussions, the leaders of 27 Member States have reached an agreement on Brexit extension. They determined two dates of delay – until 22 May, if the British Parliament approve the withdrawal deal, or until 12 April, if the document is rejected. In the latter case, the UK will decide whether it accepts the no-deal Brexit or asks the European Union to once again postpone the exit date.

The compromise position advocated by Poland from the very beginning has won: to bring the temperature down instead of raising it emphasised the Head of the Polish Government. He stressed that Poland is prepared for any outcome but will do everything possible to avoid hard Brexit as this solution is harmful for everyone.

Once again we have agreed that together with Prime Minister Theresa May, we will do our best so that Polish citizens do not suffer even in the event of hard Brexit said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that we will do everything possible to ensure that Polish-British trade also continues to grow and that Polish businesses retain the ability to seamlessly export their goods to the UK.

On the second day of the summit, EU leaders focused on such issues as relations with China, as well as economic matters, single market and UE industrial policy. During the Brussels visit, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki met with Arturs Krišjānis Kariņš, the Prime Minister of Latvia. The Prime Minister also met with prime ministers of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to mark the 25th anniversary of the European Economic Area (EEA).
