Cooperation between the Visegrád Group (V4) countries has been successful so far and will continue. The Polish and Hungarian positions on the war in Ukraine differ, but the two countries have common interests, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told Polish public radio on Wednesday.
Morawiecki was also asked about the Polish and Hungarian positions on the war in Ukraine and regional cooperation.
Central Europe is “our common home, we have common interests, and as long as we fought together on migration or on many EU directives, we were successful,” Morawiecki replied. He added that cooperation in the Visegrád Group would therefore continue.
Asked about the date of the next V4 summit, Morawiecki said that the Visegrád presidents had already met in Bratislava on Tuesday, and that a meeting of prime ministers was likely to take place within weeks.
Regarding the war in Ukraine, Morawiecki pointed out that the Hungarian position was different from the Polish one. “It is not my role to explain it from a historical point of view or according to the laws of the time, that is the job of Hungarians and of those who want to deal with issues related to Hungary,” he said.
“It is important to underline that we have common interests,” he added. He also stressed that Hungary has not yet vetoed any of the EU sanctions packages against Russia.
