The Monday-Tuesday visit to Poland by French President Emmanuel Macron opens new chapters in bilateral relations, PM Mateusz Morawiecki said at a joint press conference with the French head of state on Monday.

Earlier on Monday, Morawiecki and Macron signed a declaration on co-operation in European policy.

Morawiecki said Macron's visit to Warsaw was a breakthrough. "Very many elements of the visit, which were positively discussed by us, certainly open new chapters in the history of our relations," he said.

According to Morawiecki, Poland and France share views with respect to the EU's Common Agricultural Policy and its significance in the EU's next multi-annual budget. Europe must ensure it is self-reliant in terms of agricultural production, Morawiecki said.
