    The Foreign Minister of Poland, Germany and France will meet in Weimar on Sunday to mark the 25th anniversary of the Weimar Triangle. The ministers are due to discuss the future of the EU after the British referendum and the migration crisis, amongst other issues.

     

    The 25th anniversary meeting of the Weimar Triangle, composed of Poland, Germany and France, is taking place on the invitation of the German Foreign Minister, Rafal Sobczak, Director of the MFA’s Press Office, told PAP.

     

    The Weimar meeting will be attended by the head diplomats of Poland, Witold Waszczykowski, Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and France, Jean-Marc Ayrault. “The ministers will discuss the most important issues on the European and international agenda, including the future of the European Union after the British referendum and the migration crisis. An important topic of discussion will be Eastern policy and the situation in Eastern Ukraine,” Sobczak said. According to him, the talks will also focus on terrorist threats.

     

    “The meeting will also be an occasion to discuss the future of the Weimar Triangle as a forum of Polish-German-French dialogue,” he added.

     

    The ministers will also meet with young people and will take part in a ceremony marking the birthday of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. On Monday, the heads of diplomacy will open a joint conference of German ambassadors in Berlin.

     

    Minister Waszczykowski will then travel to Budapest, where he will take part in consultations with Hungarian ambassadors.

     

    Poland’s chief diplomat is also due to take part in a panel discussion dedicated to the Visegrad Group together with his Hungarian, Czech and Slovak counterparts.

     

    “The visit to Budapest will also be an opportunity for the Visegrad Group foreign ministers to discuss issues regarding the future of the European Union as well as current political events, including the situation in Ukraine,” Sobczak said.

     

    The Weimar Triangle was created by foreign ministers in 1991, with the aim of developing co-operation between Poland, Germany and France.
