Macron confirms its solidarity with Poland

French President Emmanuel Macron during two telephone conversations on Thursday with President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki again assured of his “full solidarity with Poland” in the migration crisis with Belarus – the Elysée Palace announced on Thursday.

Macron “also reaffirmed the need for Europe to maintain pressure on Alyaksandr Lukashenka” in order “to put an end to the instrumentalisation that puts many people at risk.”

The French president “calls on Europe to continue working with countries of origin (migrants – ed) and transit countries and airlines to end these movements and allow readmission of people who do not qualify for asylum,” added the press release.

In addition, Macron “reaffirmed the urgent need to provide necessary humanitarian aid to people blocked at the border” with the involvement of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Organization for Migration, as he spoke about on Thursday with its Director General Antonio Vitorino.
