The meeting of Mateusz Morawiecki with Marine Le Pen was a bad decision – said the PO leader Donald Tusk. He stated that he would prefer that “the Polish prime minister would be able to convince European partners that Poland unambiguously cares about a strong and united Europe, and not for cooperation with those who wish this strong Europe badly, and sometimes actively harm it”. “I would very much warn against such obvious diplomatic mistakes,” he said.
During Saturday’s briefing, Tusk pointed out that the situation in Europe was unstable because political changes were taking place everywhere. He mentioned the election in France or the tensions in the Balkans.
He emphasized that it is necessary to act in such a way that Europe and the European Union “rather integrate and protect against shocks and risks, because they will appear anyway, and so there will be a lot of them”. – I hope that the Polish government will rather be the force – if not this one, then certainly the future – integrating the European Union and not breaking it up from the inside – he said.

He added that what bothered him was the fact that “at a time when negotiations are underway to unlock money for Poland, Prime Minister Morawiecki meets, quite demonstratively, with Marine Le Pen, candidate for president from the extreme French, anti-European and unequivocally pro-Putin right wing, said the leader of the Civic Platform.

He stated that it was “a bad decision”. – I would very much warn against such obvious diplomatic mistakes – he assessed.
