Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki calls for resistance against excessive centralization of decision-making in the European Union, urging ambassadors to convey Poland’s position to European partners.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, addressing a meeting of ambassadors, expressed his strong opposition to the far-reaching centralization of decision-making within the European Union (EU). He emphasized the need to counter attempts that disregard the will of individual member states, characterizing it as a significant political challenge faced by Poland at the EU level.
Advocating for Active Diplomacy
In his address to the ambassadors, Prime Minister Morawiecki emphasized the importance of proactive engagement by all diplomats operating at the European level. He called for raising awareness among those countries that share similar concerns but may hesitate to voice them openly. Although he refrained from explicitly naming them, the Prime Minister highlighted the need to support and empower weaker nations unwilling to take risks or stand out.
Morawiecki noted that the current tendency within the EU leans towards a softer form of centralization. However, he warned that in the future, it could potentially transform into a rigid dictate driven by the interests of two member states holding veto power. The Prime Minister highlighted Poland’s emergence as an influential center of attention, particularly following Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. Not limited to post-communist countries, many nations in various parts of the world have recognized the potent threat posed by Russia and gravitated towards the shared interests of the Central European bloc.
