Mastalerek about Magierowski: he was summoned to Warsaw after July 15

This matter was commented on on Thursday on Radio Plus by the head of the Cabinet of the President of the Republic of Poland, Marcin Mastalerek. “He was summoned to Warsaw after July 15. The government cannot recall the Polish ambassador,” he said, quoted by the Chancellery of the President's social media profile. “Recalling ambassadors is some dirty game at Poland's expense. The Prime Minister does not think about how Poland will be perceived abroad,” he said. He added that “the president and the government are to cooperate in matters of foreign policy.”

Marek Magierowski has been the Polish ambassador to the USA since 2021. Previously, he spent three years on duty in Israel. His name is mentioned in the context of the dispute over the appointment of ambassadors between the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Radosław Sikorski, and President Andrzej Duda.

Sikorski already made the decision in March completion of the mission by over 50 ambassadors and the withdrawal of several candidates submitted for approval by the previous management of the ministry. When asked about it then, President Andrzej Duda argued that “no Polish ambassador can be appointed or dismissed without the president's signature.”

Grabiec: it is natural that foreign policy is conducted by the government

The head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Jan Grabiec, referred to this issue in Thursday's “Piasecki's Talk”.

– It is natural that foreign policy is conducted by the government. Ambassadors, those who implement this foreign policy, are being changed. I don't want to talk about details about a specific ambassador, because the government usually expresses its official position on this matter, he said.

– For now, we only know the president's public statements that he does not like the changes proposed by the government. I do not know the position of the president who would accept the proposals for changes that were presented in the last phase. If something has changed, we will welcome it, added Grabiec.

The head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister said that “the government rules, so there is no way for an ambassador to remain an ambassador if the government does not want him to be represented by that ambassador.”

He was asked whether he agreed that in “such difficult times, it would be good for Poland to be represented in the United States by an ambassador and not a chargé d'affaires.”

– Of course yes, hence the request to the president on this matter – replied Grabiec. – It is important that the ambassador represents us, that he represents the government, that he represents Poland, and not some political group – he added.
