Polish President’s Advisor: "To Think About Belarus and Moldova" 13:51, 02/02/2005
The EU enlargement to the East will be possible, because it will be required. The Ukraine’s case is predetermined, though Europe had not said a confirmative “yes” yet. Brussels must also work out what to do with Belarus and Moldova, told Stanislaw Ciosek, a top adviser on foreign policy to Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, in Kyiv at a press conference dedicated to Polish concept of the EU’s eastern policy.
As Radio Polonia informs, Stanislaw Ciosek explained that Poland supports Ukraine`s European Union membership aspirations not on emotional, but on rational grounds. “Ukraine’s joining the EU is to advantage of Poland, as Ukraine would become a stable and content neighbour then,” told Stanislaw Ciosek.
The Polish official categorically refuted turned down insinuations of some Russian commentators that Polish president supports Ukraine in order to encircle Russia. “For Poland and for Ukraine a democratic and safe Russia is a strategic concern,” underlined Stanislaw Ciosek.
