Swedish EU Minister Hans Dahlgren (south) meets with his Polish counterpart Konrad Szymanski to talk about “the rule of law”.
The visit comes after Poland’s Constitutional Court ruled that parts of the EU treaty were inconsistent with Poland’s constitution.
The Constitutional Court ruling was heavily criticized by representatives of the European Union and Polish citizens, who demonstrated this weekend.
The Polish Foreign Ministry announced on Saturday that the country will continue to respect binding EU laws. This promise came after several European ministers, including Hans Dahlgren, expressed concern about Poland’s development. Among other things, there was talk of withdrawing parts of the EU’s financial contribution to Poland.
– This is a dangerous situation. This portends intense confrontations and raises concerns in the union, in Brussels and many capitals including Stockholm, Hans Dahlgren told TT shortly after the fall of Polish rule on Thursday.
Questions related to the climate and the upcoming Swedish EU presidency will also be taken up by EU ministers, but the focus is on rule of law principles, according to an email from the Prime Minister’s Office.
I will explain how we look at the case, said Hans Dahlgren, before the meeting, and I will hear their opinion on it.
