There are “imbalances of interests” between different parts of the European Union, according to Poland’s deputy foreign minister

Addressing a two-day European Union summit in Brussels on October 19, Konrad Szymański warned that a better political balance can only be achieved if there is “reflection” among all EU member states.

As reported by Radio Poland online, Szymański also said the European Commission had shown “extraordinary openness” to the arguments of France in favour of limiting the common market in terms of services and on posted workers. “This situation… testifies to something bad happening in the political process in the Union,” he said.

The minister also stressed that its partners in the regional Visegrad Group “have clear expectations about a far-reaching reform of the European Union,” which he said must consider the voices of all member states.
