Poland is working to reduce tensions in the Middle East, said Prime Mister Mateusz Morawiecki during a press conference in Berlin on Wednesday.

Morawiecki was in Berlin to take part in an economic congress organised by the Axel Springer media group.

The prime minister told journalists that regarding NATO's involvement in the Middle East situation, he would advise the Alliance against making any rash reactions, such as a sudden withdrawal or some kind of escalation of presence or tension.

He added that Poland was seeking to reduce tensions, and that Poland, along with its NATO partners, and through good contacts in the Middle East, was working through diplomatic means to diminish, not escalate the conflict.

Morawiecki also said that everything that was happening in the Middle East was pointing to a kind of war of nerves, an exchange of blows, and that it would be good for that to end, and he was hopeful that it would end.

The prime minister pointed out that no soldiers or representatives of NATO countries were killed in the night rocket attack on early Wednesday. "This is also an important signal," he noted.

Morawiecki repeated that Polish soldiers were not in danger in connection with the increase in tensions in the Middle East.
