The Polish president’s chief foreign policy advisor has described comments made by Emmanuel Macron about the Polish prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, as an "unacceptable insult."

In an interview for the "Le Parisien" daily, the French president accused the Polish prime minister of "being an extreme right-wing anti-Semite who excludes LGBT people", adding that Morawiecki wanted to help Marine Le Pen, a far-right candidate running in the French presidential election.

Earlier in the week Morawiecki berated Macron for his numerous talks with Russia's President Vladimir Putin, by saying that "no one negotiates with Hitler."

Jakub Kumoch, the chief foreign policy advisor to Duda, took to Twitter on Friday to attack Macron.

"Pre-election moods prevail in France. This is the only way I can understand this inappropriate language," he wrote.

"Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki criticised President Macron's phone calls with Putin. Emmanuel Macron responded with a brutal and personal insult that was not related to this criticism. Unacceptable," Kumoch added.

The first round of the 2022 French presidential election will be held on April 10, 2022.

Polls show that Le Pen is closing in on Macron ahead of a possible election duel between the two.
