Duda: there is no diplomatic conflict with Ukraine, but negotiations are ongoing
There is currently no diplomatic conflict between Poland and Ukraine. Negotiations between the countries are ongoing.
This was stated by Polish President Andrzej Duda on the air of "Rymański's Breakfast" on Polsat News and Interia . He emphasized that the contracts of Polish defense companies for the supply of Rosomak vehicles, Krab and Piorn systems, and Grotto carbines to Ukraine are also still in effect.
"They are not suspended at all (negotiations between the countries - Ed.). There is no diplomatic conflict," the Polish leader emphasized.
He also added that he communicates with President Volodymyr Zelensky if necessary. However, Duda expressed disappointment that "Ukraine does not focus on the fact that grain transit through Poland is constantly working."
Earlier, Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau announced a decline in Polish-Ukrainian relations. That is why, according to the diplomat, he refused to come to Ukraine for the EU Council of Ministers, although he was invited.
The minister emphasized that the criticism of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the UN General Assembly against Poland has shaken the trust of Polish society in the current policy of the Ukrainian government.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL:
- Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal called the statements of the authorities of a number of countries, including Poland, about the negative impact of Ukrainian grain on their markets speculations. He emphasized that Ukrainian farmers are in a much worse situation.
- Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that Ukraine is ready to develop positive relations with Poland, negotiate and consult in the context of Ukrainian grain exports. Our country has never deviated from the strategy of constructively resolving issues related to grain exports.
- Duda said that his country would continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine. However, he clarified that this would be possible only if the Polish army receives new weapons.
