The Director of the MFA’s Press Office, Jakub Wawrzyniak, informed that during the meeting with the Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Affairs, Minister Waszczykowski would also touch on "the most important issues on the European agenda," including the future of the EU, single market, the EU’s relations with Russia and the Eastern Partnership.
Furthermore, he added that "the talks will cover security issues, EU-NATO cooperation and transatlantic relations", as well as bilateral cooperation in the context of the forthcoming centenary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and economic relations between the two countries.
Director Wawrzyniak stressed that Belgium is "actively implementing the provisions of the Warsaw NATO Summit." "Within the framework of NATO’s so-called extended presence on the Eastern Flank, Belgium is providing a company of soldiers to a multinational battalion formed by Germany in Lithuania. It also participates in the Baltic Air Policing operation," he said.
The head of the MFA Spokesperson’s Office also pointed out that Tuesday’s talks are the latest of several meetings between the two ministers. He said that recently the top diplomats of Poland and Belgium had the opportunity to talk on the sidelines of the meeting between Visegrad Group and Benelux countries held on March 5 in Brussels.
