    "Poland and Ireland enjoy very close and warm relations. We are very pleased with the strengthening of our relations and the regular dialogue at the level of foreign ministers," Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said during today's talks with Irish Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Simon Coveney.

     

    The ministers discussed the current European agenda, focusing on Europe's future and the status of Brexit negotiations. Minister Coveney thanked Poland for its solidarity shown to Ireland over Brexit. The chief of Polish diplomacy expressed his hope for finding a satisfactory solution to the issue of the Northern Ireland border.

     

    The talks agenda also covered the EU's eastern policy, the situation in Russia and Ukraine, and transatlantic cooperation. Also raised was climate policy in the context of the forthcoming COP 24 summit in Katowice.

     

    The ministers noted the excellent state of bilateral relations, which is demonstrated by both intensive high-level and expert contacts—Poland and Ireland are engaged in regular dialogue on, among other things, European affairs, digital agenda, and development issues.

     

    During today's meeting, Minister Czaputowicz also thanked for the friendly welcome the Poles living in Ireland received from Irish authorities. "The Polish community in Ireland represents an important link between our countries," said the head of the Polish MFA. The ministers emphasised the Polish community's activity in Ireland and the excellent cooperation with Irish partners, which has borne fruit in the form of PolskaEire, a Polish-Irish cultural festival.
