On Monday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had her first telephone conversation with the Belarusian leader. Alexander Lukashenka was supposed to propose a solution to the problem of illegal migration, and to emphasize that no one cares about escalating the crisis. The second conversation between the politicians took place on Wednesday.
The initiative of the German chancellor sparked loud protests from politiciansin Central European countries. President Andrzej Duda assured that Poland would not accept any of the solutions taken over our heads.
Commenting on Merkel’s talks with Lukashenka and Putin, MEP Anna Zalewska described them as “a big surprise”.
– The individual talks of Angela Merkel and President Macron with Lukashenka, who broke with European solidarity and pursued their own goals, were a big surprise. Angela Merkel does not hide that she will do everything to complete the construction of Nord Stream 2, which is a German-Russian project, the politician said on Polish Radio 24.
Zalewska recalled that as a result of the resolution adopted by the European Parliament, it was Joseph Borrell, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, who was to speak on behalf of all Member States on the migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border.
– Lukashenka wants his legitimacy to be recognized, recognized as a representative of Belarus and forgotten about the rigged elections and Mrs. Cichanouska, about the thousands of Polish and Belarusian citizens who are in prisons – Zalewska also pointed out, referring to the goals of the Belarusian leader.
