Speaking at a joint news conference with the French leader, Mateusz Morawiecki said the Weimar Triangle, which brings together Poland, France and Germany, was “a very good format” because the three countries, after Britain’s exit from the European Union, represented 42 percent of the bloc’s population.
Morawiecki added, as quoted by Poland's PAP news agency, that the Weimar Triangle countries were like-minded or thinking along similar lines on a number of issues, including the need to strengthen European industries and develop new technology.
The Weimar Triangle group was set up by Poland, Germany and France in the early 1990s. In recent years, however, the initiative has lost much of its momentum, with the last summit of heads of state held seven years ago in Warsaw, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.
While in Poland on a two-day visit, France’s Macron proposed holding a new summit of the three countries’ leaders in the coming months, saying that Warsaw, Paris and Berlin should take responsibility for the development of the European Union after Britain’s departure from the bloc, the IAR news agency reported.
