Poland is open for cooperation with Ukraine in the issue of building a common interconnector, Polish-Ukrainian gas pipeline that will transport natural gas from Europe to Ukraine through Poland. The Prime Minister of Poland Beata Szydlo stated this after talks with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman at the Economic Forum in Krynica-Zdroj.
"The Ukrainian side is very interested in joint projects and gas and energy supply is a priority for them", she said in an interview with the head of Poland's PAP government.
Szydlo noted that during the meeting Groysman raised the issue of building a joint interconnector.
"It is possible that we will reach this goal. It will give Polish businesses the chance to enter the Ukrainian market, and Ukrainian Prime Minister is very interested in it", summed up the Poland’s PM.
According to Szydlo, Poland will support Ukraine in the "fight against the construction of the Nord Stream pipeline".
"We are creating a coalition of countries that oppose this project, which is also very useful for Ukraine", said Szydlo.
Recall that Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers ordered to pump into its underground gas storage facilities 17 billion cubic meters of natural gas before November 1.
