The political initiatives presented during the presidency and the strengthening of regional solidarity helped confirm Poland's active role in Central Europe, the Polish foreign ministry said in a statement.
The Polish Presidency of the Visegrad Group (V4) showed European partners that the “Group is responsible, determined and actively involved in defending its regional interests”.
“The Presidency helped confirm Poland’s high involvement and active participation in the Visegrad Group,” the ministry added.
“Within the Polish Presidency of the V4 we have focused primarily on European issues. The position of the V4 strongly resonated in the EU forum, thus building a sense of community of interests within the group. This was particularly true of issues such as the reform and the future of the EU, Brexit and the challenges caused by migration to the EU.” (rg)
