Poland is an observer of the Ukraine-Russia peace talks, but it is difficult to predict or indicate that Poland will be a guarantor of something or not, when we do not know what form the agreement will take; We will look at the matter from the perspective of Polish interests, said Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przydać.
The deputy head of the foreign ministry added that at the moment “it is too early to speak with 100% certainty about Poland’s role.”
On Tuesday in Istanbul, during the Ukraine-Russia peace talks, the Ukrainian authorities offered their country the status of a neutral state in exchange for security guarantees, which means that Ukraine will not be able to join any military alliance, and foreign bases will not be able to join any military alliance. to be deployed on its territory. The guarantors of Ukraine’s security include the permanent members of the UN Security Council (USA, Great Britain, China, France and Russia) as well as Turkey, Germany, Canada, Italy, Poland and Israel.
On Wednesday, the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was asked in TVP Info about these talks and Poland’s role in them, as well as the possibility of our country providing such guarantees.
Brzedic indicated that the talks revolve around the Ukrainian-Russian talks, and that the Polish side is an observer of these talks. “Poland, so to speak, is on the whole table of conversation, but it is difficult to predict or indicate directly whether Poland will be a guarantor of something or not, when we do not finally know what form the agreement will take,” he said.
He noted that “today it is too early to speak with 100% certainty about Poland’s role.” “We will consider this agreement from the perspective of the Polish interest. If it is in our interest, in the interest of the security of the region, we may indeed play such a role, but if not, if this agreement takes a full role in a different form, unfavorable from our point of view, Naturally, we would not take on such a role, “- emphasized.
“On the other hand, what is important is that in this speech, the dialogue, we are there. Let me remind you that in 2014, when Ukraine, Donbass and Crimea were discussed, Germany, France and the United States were a discussion. No one invited Poland to the discussion table in That time. Today we are at the center of this debate, Joe Biden, he comes to Warsaw to talk about the situation in Ukraine, and Minister (Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro) Kuleba comes here for talks ”- added Przydacz.
