Meets Secretary of State
For Exiting The EU Davis
(November 8, 2017) “I hope that in the period remaining until the end of British membership of the European Union, London will continue to take an active part in all key EU discussions. Poland and the UK share many interests across various fields,” Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said after today’s meeting with Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis.
In their talks today, the two officials discussed British negotiations over Brexit. Secretary Davis presented the British government’s assessment of the state of negotiations, which will continue in Brussels on 9-10 November. Minister Waszczykowski declared that Poland supports the idea of starting talks on a future EU-UK relationship possibly soon. In order for these talks to begin, sufficient progress must be made on citizens’ rights, financial issues, and the Irish question. Poland believes that future EU-UK ties should be unprecedented in their depth.
The ministers agreed about the excellent state of bilateral relations, pointing specifically to their regular cooperation formats, such as the Quadriga meeting of foreign and defence ministers, last held in London on 12 October, and the intergovernmental consultations that will again take place in Warsaw on 21 December.
The UK secretary of state also met with the MFA Secretary of State for European Affairs Konrad Szymański.
