Polish PM warns France's Macron over Russian propaganda

Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Wednesday met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris and said afterwards that they took a similar view of international events including a months-long migrant crisis on the European Union's eastern border.

After the meeting at the Élysée Palace, Morawiecki told reporters he had communicated to Macron his concerns about several "coexisting" geopolitical challenges for Europe, Poland's PAP news agency reported.

These include "the situation on Poland's border with Belarus, which is also the eastern frontier of NATO and the European Union," Morawiecki said. He also listed "the build-up of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine" and "Moscow's gas blackmail," which he said was leading to rising energy prices across Europe.

Morawiecki told reporters that Macron "underlined several times that our views of these risks, of the events happening around us, are very similar."

He said he had also told Macron "about that peculiar Russian weapon, namely propaganda, hacker attacks and cyber crime." 

"To all these combined actions, there should be one response, namely the whole EU working together," Morawiecki stressed. 

"I am pleased to see such a collective approach during the discussions I've held across Europe, as we continue our diplomatic offensive," he also said.

Diplomatic drive 

Over the past few days, Polish leaders have stepped up their diplomatic efforts to garner international support as Warsaw strives to fix the migration crisis on its frontier with Belarus.

As part of this offensive, Morawiecki on Sunday visited the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, before taking part in a summit of the regional Visegrad Group and also visiting Croatia on Tuesday.

Following the meeting at the Élysée Palace, the Polish prime minister was set to travel to Ljubljana for talks with Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, whose country currently presides over the European Union.

"Issues such as the difficult geopolitical situation, cyber attacks, threats on the energy market and artificial migration flows - all these require joint action and coordination," the Polish government spokesman, Piotr Müller, tweeted ahead of Morawiecki's trip.

On Thursday, Morawiecki is due to hold talks with Germany's outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

While in Paris on Wednesday, the Polish prime minister said he would talk to Merkel about the controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany.

The months-long migrant crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border has escalated in recent weeks, with Poland, the European Union and its member states, as well as NATO and the United States accusing Belarus strongman leader Alexander Lukashenko of orchestrating the standoff in retaliation for Western sanctions against his regime.
