Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told a press conference in Brussels on Friday that the political situation in Great Britain has "clarified" and that unfortunately it will come to Brexit.

Morawiecki added that the landslide win for the Conservatives, giving the party an absolute majority in the House of Commons, would also give the EU the opportunity to establish "new principles of cooperation" with the UK government.

"(...) we can count on a stable political situation in Great Britain and that there will be rapid negotiations, which will maybe clarify the model and mechanism of close cooperation between Great Britain and the European Union," the prime minister said, clarifying that he had in mind cooperation in trade and investment as well as in the field of security within NATO, which is "an extremely important transatlantic tie" in addition to political cooperation.

"I have spoken to Prime Minister Boris Johnson about it many times," he said.
