Krzysztof Szczerski, a senior foreign-policy aide to Polish President Andrzej Duda, said that the meeting with advisers to French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel marks the return to a working agenda of the Weimar Triangle.
Szczerski said that the aim of the meeting is to exchange opinions, summarise the current relationships in the Weimar Triangle, as well as to work out a common position on the main issues of international security, European politics and the future of Europe.
“There was a moment of hesitation, or a pause in the workings of the Weimar Triangle in recent months. What is important is that that period is behind us,” Szczerski said, adding that the preparations for next week's meeting were initiated by French officials.
Last year marked 25 years since the founding of the Weimar Triangle, a platform for collaboration between Paris, Warsaw and Berlin. (rg/pk)
