Polish PM takes part in EC videoconference

Methods of tackling the coronavirus crisis and its socio-economic consequences for the EU were among the topics of discussion in a European Council videoconference attended by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Thursday, the PM's Office has announced.

This was the third videoconference for EU heads of state and government since the coronavirus outbreak, but the first to replace a regular summit, which was scheduled to take place in Brussels.

"The heads of state and government raised, among other issues, the matter of new EU fiscal instruments aimed at supporting the member states," the PM's Office stated.

"Also discussed were issues related to border management, limitations in the circulation of medicines and personal protective means as well as the repatriation of citizens from third countries."
