Macron proposes Weimar Triangle meeting in July - President Duda
Announcing on Tuesday that French President Emmanuel Macron had invited him to attend a meeting of the tri-state (France, Germany, Poland) Weimar Triangle format, Polish President Andrzej Duda expressed satisfaction that the meeting would take place.
Speaking at a Tuesday press conference, Duda said Macron on Monday had invited him to the meeting, in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel will also participate: "although unofficially - he invited me to take part in the summit," Duda said. The meeting is set for July 14. "If there will be a meeting - as President Macron has announced - on July 14 in Paris, then in all certainty I will make it to that meeting," the president added.
"It's a very important signal, because maybe no one has any doubt that if that format - three countries - meet at a moment in which there are such important changes happening in the EU, and shifts that are taking place in the wake of Brexit, it is politically a very important moment for us," Duda continued.
In Duda's view it is always worth talking to the highest representatives of the French and German governments on the subject of the future of Europe and the EU. "They are the most powerful countries in Europe today," he said. "We are also one of the large EU states and I'm glad that the meeting will happen."
