Poland supports a plan to enlarge the European Union to include the Balkan region, said Polish foreign minister Radosław Sikorski after talks in Warsaw with Ollien Rehn, European commissioner for enlargement, Oct. 23. "We particularly support Croatia's bid," Sikorski said. Sikorski also briefed Rehn on Poland's position on Ukrainian membership of the EU.

The two politicians also discussed a Polish-Swedish Eastern Partnership project for a common EU policy toward Eastern European countries that were once part of the Soviet bloc, either as Soviet republics or satellite states. Poland and Sweden recently submitted to the European Commission a new draft of proposals related to this project.

"We would like a free-trade zone to be established between the EU and the Eastern Partnership countries by 2012," Sikorski said. He added that Poland and Sweden would like the EU to introduce relaxed visa requirements for these countries as early as possible or even lift the visa requirements altogether.

While in Poland, Rehn also met with Mikołaj Dowgielewicz, head of the Polish Office of the Committee for European Integration, and took part in a joint meeting of the parliamentary committees for EU and foreign affairs.
