A working visit of Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic Eduard Heger to Poland, who has met with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, was scheduled for today – June 10. Prime Minister Heger is holding an official bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Morawiecki for the first time after he was appointed the head of government on April 1, 2021.
The agenda of the talks between the heads of government includes bilateral political and economic cooperation as well as regional cooperation, including the Visegrad Group and the Tri-City Initiative.
During their visit to Poland, the Prime Ministers lay flowers together at the monument commemorating the 535th platoon of the Home Army “Slovaks”.
The Prime Ministers discuss topics such as the challenges of countering and dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, social and migration policy, as well as key current issues in enlargement policy. The discussion also focuses on the European Union’s Eastern policy, including the situation in Belarus and relations with Russia – in the context of preparations for the leaders’ debate planned for the June European Council.
‘Poland and Slovakia cooperate on key infrastructure projects, such as road and transmission connections on the north-south axis. A new connection between the gas transmission systems of Poland and Slovakia is under construction. The project is on the EU’s list of priority infrastructure projects (PCI) and has received funding from the European Union. It is one of the key projects comprising the North-South Gas Corridor, which will enable direct gas transmission between Poland and Slovakia and other countries in the region. Consequently, the Poland-Slovakia interconnection will contribute to the diversification of gas supply sources and directions, and thus to the improvement of energy security in our region of Europe’ – said Piotr Mueller – Polish government’s spokesman.
