Polish mayor deplores decision from sister town in France

Polish mayor deplores decision from sister town in France - A Polish mayor has deplored the decision by a sister town in France to suspend 25-year official ties with her town because it declared itself an area “free of LGBT ideology.” The mayor of the town blamed the rare decision by the French community it had been twinned with, on campaigning ahead of local elections there.

She expressed regret that severing ties will cut friendly relations among residents. The sister municipality in central France suspended ties last week and said in a statement that “France is committed to combating human rights violations based on sexual orientation ... We cannot accept that the ties that unite our two cities by a twinning oath be tainted. We condemn the position taken by our twin city.”
