Polish PM promises strong support for strengthening sanctions

Poland is committed to strengthening of sanctions against Russia and will do everything possible to keep the unity of all the EU countries in this issue.

Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz has said this on Tuesday after the meeting of the Polish government, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The ministers [EU foreign ministers] have decided to uphold the sanctions, currently imposed on Russia, and to strengthen them further. I will speak at the European Council meeting on February 12 with such suggestions and recommendations," Kopacz said.

She has emphasized that she will try to do everything possible for the decisions about further sanctions to be approved unanimously to be "common decision of all EU countries."

Kopacz has noted that the EU sanctions against Russia are not the European policy with respect to Moscow, but "a response to a policy, which Russia conducts towards Ukraine."

At the same time Kopacz mentions that her country does not want a confrontation with Russia, "but we cannot accept aggression and violation of international law." "And this should be clear," she has underlined.
