French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was cited as saying that his country would host a meeting of Weimar Triangle foreign ministers in October.
Poland's Zbigniew Rau and France's Le Drian also talked about bilateral relations and "issues on the international agenda" when they spoke on the phone on Monday, the Polish foreign ministry said.
Poland and France earlier this year agreed to renew ties as part of the Weimar Triangle group, which also includes Germany.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said at the time 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.
Speaking at a joint news conference with visiting French President Emmanuel Macron in Warsaw in February, Morawiecki said 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 more than seven years ago in Warsaw, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency has reported.
While in Poland on a two-day visit before the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, France’s Macron proposed holding a new summit of the three countries’ leaders, 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.
