    Coordinating Visegrad Group actions in response to Ukraine’s situation, the Group’s plans for the next months, and the situation in Central Europe were the main points of talks that were held on 22 January with Slovak Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter Burian. The deputy chief of Slovak diplomacy met in Warsaw with the Polish Undersecretaries of State: Henryka Mościcka-Dendys and Konrad Pawlik.

    Deputy Minister Henryka Mościcka-Dendys emphasised that Poland is most glad to have intensive relations with Slovakia. She noted the importance of the December consultations between the two ministries as part of the Polish-Slovak Discussion Forum in Bratislava, which dealt with the impact of the Ukraine crisis on security and economic situation in Central Europe.

     

    The deputy foreign minister of Slovakia, which is now holding presidency of the Visegrad Group, also spoke about plans for the next months and Polish-Slovak cooperation: “We share views on many foreign policy issues and very often have consultations; we need to send a clear message about the level of our ambitions.” Deputy Minster Mościcka-Dendys also recalled the fifteenth anniversary of the International Visegrad Fund: “We should use this time to review our actions, mark out best projects and on such a basis define our priorities for the future.”

     

    Deputy Minister Konrad Pawlik spoke with Peter Burian about possible coordination of the two states’ Visegrad Group actions, potential visits to Eastern Partnership countries, and possible joint humanitarian relief operations for Ukraine. “Right now, with the forthcoming Riga summit and ongoing debate about European Neighbourhood Policy, it is essential that we work out a broader framework of V4 cooperation in Eastern Partnership countries,” said the MFA deputy chief. He also brought up the Polish authorities’ involvement in the devolution reform in Ukraine.
