Macron calls for closer ties with Poland

Macron calls for closer ties with Poland - French President Emmanuel Macron has called for closer ties with Poland in shaping the European Union without Britain, in European security and relations with Russia.

Following talks in Warsaw with Polish President Macron urged a summit meeting along with Germany before the summer,

He said the three countries “bear responsibility for Europe's future” and should resume that role, especially after Britain's departure last week.

Macron has previously been critical of Poland's right-wing government and its policies of refusing to accept migrants, continuing reliance on coal and trying to bring the judiciary under political control.

His predecessor, Francois Hollande, canceled a visit in 2016 after Warsaw scrapped a planned purchase of French helicopters.

Macron said he would like his visit to be a “turning point” in bilateral relations and for any misunderstandings to be cleared up.
