The comments followed a key speech in the Polish parliament by Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski, outlining the government's foreign policy plans. These included greater cooperation with the European Union and NATO.

Poland has been working hard to strengthen NATO's presence on the alliance's eastern flank following Russia's conflict with Ukraine.

“Warsaw, in this case accepts these messages, sent from Washington,” Zakharova told journalists in the Kremlin on Friday.

“The US and Poland are like actors in the same operetta,” Zakharova said.

“We are ready to develop economic and political relations [with these two countries]. We are ready to resolve the toughest issues related to our history. But this is a constructive process,” the spokeswoman said.

“There is another solution – to live in constant fear, anxiety, and uncertainty; get worked up over these signals from across the ocean, and live in a constant state of emergency," Zhakarova said. "Poland can choose.” (rg/pk)
