Terlecki in Vilnius: We have a list of issues we would like to raise

Deputy Marshal of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland Ryszard Terlecki met with a Deputy Speaker of the Seimas Arvydas Nekrošius. The meeting concentrated mainly on timetable and dates of the first of the inter-parliamentary meetings, which will be continued after a longer break.

The session will be preceded by a working group meeting, which will take place in Warsaw at the end of September.

Poland has already prepared a list of the most important issues to discuss, as stated by Marshal Ryszard Terlecki in an interview with Radio Znad Wilii.

“We have a list of matters which we would in particular like to raise. These are matters relating to cooperation between our countries. Of course, governments, ministries, presidents – each operates at its level, however, parliament is also an important place of debate on international issues, so we want security, future of European Union, energy security and economic cooperation to be the main topics of the meetings” – said Terlecki.

The Deputy Marshal of the Polish Sejm assured that the matter of national minorities will certainly not be missed.

“We hope that all the issues that divide us, will be resolved” – noted the politician.

Ryszard Terlecki will take part in an international conference in Vilnius under the auspices of the President Valdas Adamkus. The Polish politician will be a panelist in the discussion on “How to bring back the development of NATO and Europe to the agenda of NATO and EU biggest capitals. How to finalise building free and undivided Europe, and resist Russian invasion to Europe”. MEP Anna Fotyga will present a theme block “How to change Russia, make it more democratic and European, and not to be influenced by Kremlin”.

In the conference will take part politicians and strategists from USA, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium, Latvia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova and Russian dissidents.
