Jacek Czaputowicz, the new Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland is full of desire to solve the disputable historical issues with Ukraine in the near time. He claimed this during the talk with Pavlo Klimkin, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister as the press service of the Polish Foreign Ministry reported.
'Minister Czaputowicz reaffirmed Poland’s commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and emphasized that Poland will continue to support Ukraine’s European aspirations. He also expressed his hope that Poland and Ukraine will promptly resolve problematic issues relating to the past', the message said.
As we reported Andrzej Duda, the President of Poland presented the new ministers in the government - those recommended by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Particularly, Jacek Czaputowicz replaced Witold Waszczykowski as Foreign Minister.
As 112 International reported, Waszczykowski said Ukraine cannot join the EU with Stepan Bandera’s cult of personality prospering in society. ‘Our message is extremely clear: you will not enter Europe with Bandera. We tell about this loud and silently. We will not repeat the mistakes of 1990s years when there were the problems in the relations with Germany and Lithuania. I mean the status of the Polish minorities in these countries. We have such experience and we will firmly demand from Ukraine to get all things done before Kyiv will ask the membership in Europe’, he said.
