On the sidelines of the European Council meeting in Brussels, Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis and Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szydlo discussed on Thursday the bilateral relations, the renegotiation of the relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union, and the security challenges in Eastern Europe.
According to a release by the Presidential Administration, the President and the prime minister approached some of the main topics on the bilateral agenda, with focus on the shared interest to strengthen the Strategic Partnership that stays at the grounds of the cooperation between the two countries.
“The two high officials voiced their satisfaction for the excellent level of the bilateral relations and agreed upon the need to boost economic cooperation according to the significant existing potential in this regard,” the press release adds.
Talks have also aimed at the main topics on the European Council’s agenda, with an accent on renegotiating the relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
President Iohannis and Prime Minister Szydlo have decided that Romania and Poland should further consolidate the already existing cooperation on European issues, which is based on several shared interests and similar outlooks.
“An opinion exchange took place, too, on the stage of the strategic and security dialogue, in the perspective of the NATO Summit in Warsaw this July and of the increasingly complex security challenges in Eastern Europe,” the source says.
