Poland and Italy’s right-wing rulers are to cement their “special relations” at a meeting in Warsaw, which could make a new anti-EU league a major force in the next European Parliament (EP).
The meeting, between Polish ruling party chief, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and Italian interior minister and deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini, in the Polish capital on Wednesday (9 January) is to discuss Poland’s membership in Salvini’s new EP group, according to Italian daily La Repubblica.
“It’s a meeting at the highest level. If [party] president Kaczynski meets another politician, it’s a sign of a certain special relationship, which is how we are treating it,” Polish foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz told Polish radio station RMF on Saturday.
“We have to discuss matters related to the European Parliament,” he added.
