We will consistently fight against the political violence of the Weber group, and that is why I did not agree yesterday to this dictate that flowed from there, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in Kościerzyna (Pomeranian Voivodeship). He thus referred to an earlier statement by the chairman of the European People’s Party, Manfred Weber, as well as to the fact that Poland and Hungary refused to accept migration conclusions at the European Union summit. However, as the TVN24 correspondent in Brussels previously explained, blocking these conclusions will not change anything about the new EU regulation on migration, which is still being worked on at another level.

After the end of the two-day EU summit in Brussels on Friday, the President of the European Council Charles Michel informed that European Union countries failed to agree on joint conclusions on migration policy.

Prime Minister Morawiecki said on Friday in Brussels that the Polish government did not agree to compulsory relocation. The head of the government declared that Poland would not agree to a change in migration policy and was in favor of a voluntary approach in this matter.

Morawiecki: in the east we see the Wagner Group, and in the west we see the Weber Group

On Saturday, the head of the government met with the inhabitants of Kościerzyna (Pomerania). He referred to the security issue in the context of the Wagner Group, which is to be moved to Belarus.

– In this difficult time, full of risks and uncertainties, in the east we see the Wagner Group, which is about to move to Belarus, and in the west we see the Weber group – he noted, referring to the interview of the German politician, chairman of the EPP group in the European Parliament, Manfred Weber for “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”.

– Can you imagine words about a firewall from the mouth of a cheeky German? (…) they have no shame, assessed Morawiecki.

Morawiecki: Weber will not tell us about the firewall

– And the leader of Germany (Chancellor Olaf Scholz – ed.) says that the migration policy must also be adopted by Poland, because it must relieve Germany. Are we here to relieve Germany? It is their conscience that must be relieved as they will finally pay reparations for the crimes they committed here, also on Kashubian soil, continued the Prime Minister.

– Weber won’t tell us about the firewall. We will not allow it. That is why we will consistently fight this political violence of the Weber group, and that is why I did not agree yesterday to this dictate that flowed from there – added Morawiecki, referring to Poland’s blocking of the conclusions of the EU summit.

Weber did not say that Germany is “the only force that can replace PiS in Poland”

Konkret24 also analyzed Manfred Weber’s statement from the end of June, to which Morawiecki was now referring.

PiS politicians: German MEP believes that Germany is “the only force that can replace PiS in Poland”. No, it doesn’t say that

Weber in an interview with “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” said, among other things: “We are building a firewall against PiS. We are the only force that can replace PiS in Poland and lead this country back to Europe.”

In the entries of some politicians, there was a suggestion that Weber meant “Berlin”, “Germany” or “Germans” as “the only force that can replace PiS in Poland”.

From the full context, it is clear that the German MEP was not talking about Germany, but about the European People’s Party as “a force that can replace PiS in Poland and lead the country back to Europe.” This is evidenced by the fact that he says “we” about Eduard Heger – the leader of the Slovak Democrats party, belonging to the EPP group in the European Parliament.

What will blocking the conclusion change? We explain

Earlier, we also explained that Poland’s blocking of the EU conclusions – which the Prime Minister now said that he did not agree to the “dictatorship” – will not change anything about the new EU regulation on migration.

TVN24 Brussels correspondent Maciej Sokołowski explained that blocking these conclusions “will not change anything about the new regulation on migration.” As he pointed out, these regulations are created at a different level, at the level of interior ministers, and there they will be adopted by voting.

“Therefore, other countries are not afraid of the Polish threat to block the conclusions, because their absence will not affect the situation, will not block the adoption of the regulation or stop further work,” Sokołowski informed.
