  • Minister Witold Waszczykowski’s visit to the Republic of Korea on the occasion of the launch of a new direct flight service from Warsaw to Seoul by LOT Polish Airlines has been given coverage by Joongang Ilbo, a South Korean daily.


    The interview brings up the recent nuclear test by North Korea. Minister Waszczykowski notes Poland’s important role as a member of the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission. The minister recalls that Poland has embassies in both North and South Korea.


    Commenting on the issue of employing North Korean labourers in Eastern European countries, the chief of Polish diplomacy stresses that the Polish government has never employed people from North Korea and explains that it was private companies that have done so. The Polish government has suspended issuing work permits to North Korean workers, which is likely to bring their number down.


    The Polish foreign minister furthermore speaks about the Warsaw NATO summit in July and the security environment in Europe. He underlines cooperation with South Korea on cybersecurity and over Afghanistan.


    In the interview, Minister Waszczykowski also mentions the joint Polish-German history textbook project, noting the dialogue between historians, teachers, and the private sector.


    Minister Waszczykowski also notes the contribution of the pianist Cho Sung-Jin, the laureate of the International Chopin Piano Competition, to promoting Poland in South Korea.
