EU, US and Ukraine – Poland calls for a special summit for closer cooperation


According to Head of State Andrzej Duda, Poland wants to promote European relations with the US and Ukraine during its EU Council presidency in 2025. Duda said this on Wednesday in Warsaw in a speech on the twentieth anniversary of Poland’s accession to the European Union. To this end, two extraordinary summits will take place.

There should be a summit between the EU and the US. The EU’s second meeting with Ukraine should be devoted to the reconstruction of the country attacked by Russia.

Duda presents plan without Tusk
Admitting Ukraine, Moldova and Western Balkan countries to the EU is a priority for Poland’s EU presidency in the first half of next year, Duda said.

The chairman of the national-conservative and Eurocritical former ruling party PiS announced this program without the new liberal government leader Donald Tusk. This one is sick; a planned meeting with Duda could not take place.

Encouraging predictions for Poland
Poland joined the EU on May 1, 2004, together with Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Cyprus and Malta. The twenty years of membership were of historical importance for Poland, Duda said. “The presence in the EU has contributed in a way that cannot be overestimated to Poland’s dynamic development over the past twenty years,” he said, according to the PAP agency.

Poland, which was under communist rule until 1989, developed and modernized rapidly thanks to EU membership. On the occasion of the anniversary, Prime Minister Tusk cited World Bank calculations according to which Poland would overtake the eliminated Britain in terms of per capita income by 2025. “I promise this: by the 25th anniversary, Poles will be richer are then the British. It is better to be in the Union!”, the head of government wrote on platform X (formerly Twitter).
