The President of Poland Andrzej Duda thinks that Ukrainians and Polish should seek understanding, but it should be done on the basis of historical truth. This was announced by Polish President to reporters before the meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko, reports Polish Radio.
"However, when it comes to relations between the Polish and Ukrainian peoples, we must seek consensus, but this cannot be done without historical truth. Historical truth must be explained. It is often difficult, but Ukraine and Ukrainians are not the only people with whom we, the Poles, have some historical problems,” Duda said.
Germans and the Poles also had problems at one time, but now we have good economic cooperation, he said.
He also mentioned that the main issue in talks with Poroshenko will be the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"The most important issue is the process of implementation of the Minsk agreement and it will be the main topic that I want to discuss with President Petro Poroshenko. Now the most important issue is to completely stop the armed conflict in Ukraine," the Polish President said.
Duda added that he would ask Ukrainian President will ask how he evaluates the implementation of Minsk agreements by Russian side, and also "how the process of implementation of Minsk agreements by Ukrainian side looks like and how the reforms are implemented in Ukraine".
Earlier it was reported that Poroshenko visits Poland today on December 2. Ukraine’s President and the first lady to meet Polish leaders, discuss wide variety of political issues.
