  • [01] European solidarity is important to Greece, Papoulias tells Polish counterpart

  • [01] European solidarity is important to Greece, Papoulias tells Polish counterpart

    ANA-MPA - Republic President Karolos Papoulias underlined the importance of European solidarity in the crucial period Greece is going through, during his meeting with his Polish counterpart Bronislaw Komorowski on Monday in the context of his two-day official visit to Warsaw.

    Papoulias said after the meeting that he briefed Komorowski on the economic crisis experienced by Greece, noting that "the Greek people, particularly the financially weak, are being tested by the crisis". He also underlined that "during these times, solidarity between the European partners is very important". Their discussion also focused on the future prospects of the European plan as they are being shaped under the pressure of the economic crisis.

    President Papoulias also said that they discussed in detail bilateral relations' issues and current international developments. Bilateral relations are excellent, he noted, adding that the signing of a cooperation agreement on the sectors of culture, education and science is within this context.

    The participation of a large business delegation in the mission will contribute to further boosting cooperation on important sectors of the economy including tourism, according to Papoulias, who also briefed the Polish president on Greek national issues, focusing on the recent developments in the Cyprus issue. "I pointed out that although the main role in solving the Cyprus issue belongs to the UN, following Cyprus' membership in the EU the solution to the issue has to be European, namely, to be compatible with the European acquis".

    The presidents of Greece and Poland also discussed the EU integration course of the Western Balkan countries and the European good neighbourly relations policy, and Papoulias invited his Polish counterpart to visit Greece officially.

    Papoulias' itinerary includes a meeting with Prime Minister Donald Tusk and a visit to the country's national parliament. Later in the evening, he will attend a formal dinner hosted in his honor by President Komorowski. On Tuesday, Papoulias will visit the WWII concentration camps Auschwitz and Birkenau in Krakow and pay homage to the victims of the Nazi atrocities.
