PR dla Zagranicy
President Bronislaw Komorowski is in Berlin to mark the twentieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty on Good Neighbourly Relations and Friendly Cooperation between Poland and Germany.
During his one-day visit, Komorowski is to give a speech at the Humboldt University as well as take part in a ceremony marking 20 years of the Polish-German Youth Cooperation with his opposite number, Christian Wulff.
Friday’s meeting comes exactly two weeks before Poland takes over the rotating EU Council presidency.
Prior to his visit, Komorowski stated that Germany is one of Poland’s key allies for the 6-month presidency, underlining that Warsaw and Berlin have a similar point of view in a number of key issues.
The Polish head of state is also set to posthumously decorate Ludwig Mehlhorn, a German human rights activist who opposed the Polish communist regime from the 1970s and a promoter of Polish-German relations, with the Commander’s Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta. (jb)
