Poland has a stronger position in the international arena today compared to two years ago, said Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło at a Foreign Policy Forum in Warsaw on Thursday.

Szydło attributed the success in part to Poland’s Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski and Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymański.

Szydło said that the government, which assumed office nearly exactly two years ago, fulfilled promises to make Poland safe, to fight for Poland’s national interests in the European Union, and to enforce Poland’s role in regional partnerships.

The conservative Law and Justice (PiS)-led government has locked horns with the European Commission, rejecting the bloc’s migration policy and passing legislation despite criticism from Brussels.

PiS has also stepped up efforts within the Visegrad Group partnership with Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic and spearheaded a Three Seas Initiative, a partnership of 12 countries between the Baltic, Black and Adriatic Seas. (vb)
