The talks, which also concerned the development of the EU’s Eastern Partnership programme, were held on Wednesday ahead of a meeting of foreign ministers from Visegrad Group and Eastern Partnership nations that was also attended by officials from other countries, the ministry said in a report posted on its website.
During their Warsaw talks, Waszczykowski and Wallström noted that Poland and Sweden had both played a key role in launching the Eastern Partnership programme, which covers Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
The ministers agreed that a new impetus should be given to the Eastern Partnership initiative, according to the Polish foreign ministry.
Poland and Sweden share the same view on challenges in the Baltic Sea region, the Polish foreign ministry said.
A major topic discussed by the two ministers was the future of the European Union, including its prospects after the UK’s departure from the bloc, the ministry added.
Waszczykowski also offered condolences to the Swedish foreign minister over a recent terrorist attack in the centre of Stockholm that killed four people, the Polish ministry said.
