The situation in Belarus being the main subject of discussion between the Head of the Polish Government and the EU leaders

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki actively participates in building international support for Belarus. In the afternoon, he held a telephone conversation with Charles Michel, President of the European Council, Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission and Olivér Várhelyi, Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement.

All this is due to the current difficult situation beyond the eastern border of our country. After presidential elections held  last weekend and the exit poll results, Belarusians took to the streets all over the country. The situation in Belarus and the violent events that took place at night from Sunday to Monday raise serious concerns in Poland. The unstable situation and possible escalation of the conflict beyond the eastern border of the EU is a serious risk for the security of Poland and the entire Community.

The telephone conversation with EU leaders followed a letter that Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki sent this morning to Charles Michel, President of the European Council, and Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission. The Head of the Government indicated that as the countries of the United Europe we have a duty to act in solidarity with the Belarusian people. The EU, which should be a global leader on the international arena, must be actively involved in resolving the dispute and should work to prevent conflict aggravation. The Prime Minister also reminded that such crises often ended in an uncontrolled escalation and brought many victims in the recent past. The EU cannot abdicate in its role and leave the Belarusian people without support.
