    “I want to assure you that the Polish administration is fully prepared to cooperate closely and on a regular basis with the Estonian Presidency,” said Minister Witold Waszczykowski on Monday during a meeting of ambassadors of EU Member States accredited to Poland.

     

    The meeting, organised on the start of Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the EU, was hosted by the Ambassador of the Republic of Estonia, Harri Tiido.


    The main topic of the discussion were the challenges facing the European Union and the programme and priorities of the Estonian Presidency, which are as follows: an open and innovative European economy, a safe and secure Europe, a digital Europe and the free movement of data, an inclusive and sustainable Europe and two horizontal priorities: the digital agenda and the Eastern Partnership. 
     

    Poland’s top diplomat expressed his support for the priorities of the Estonian Presidency, stressing the importance of Europe’s security. He also underscored that Poland backs the development of the single market, also in the digital dimension, as well as efforts to increase Europe’s competiveness, which should positively affect the labour markets of the Member States. 


    Minister Waszczykowski emphasized that Poland places high hopes for the Eastern Partnership summit to be held in November and is glad that the Estonian Presidency attaches special importance to this project. He also noted that Poland and Estonia are engaged in an intensive political dialogue and that the views expressed by Poland and the Baltic States are traditionally close, especially regarding security analyses and the eastern policy.
