President Attends EU Summit

President Lech Kaczyński represented Poland at an informal EU summit in Brussels Nov. 7 but, despite an official request from the government, did not raise the issue of ratifying the Lisbon Treaty. Kaczyński told reporters after the summit that he had raised the issue of the global economic crisis and the situation in Georgia, and he also told the meeting that the Polish government had approved a plan for Poland to enter the euro zone "within a short time." However, that latter issue "was not a subject of the discussions and met with no reaction," Kaczyński said.

Kaczyński also told EU state and government leaders that Poland's banking system remains was good condition though the country was experiencing a period of economic slowdown in a trend that started before the latest financial crisis erupted. "Our economic situation is incomparably better than elsewhere," Kaczyński told reporters after the summit.

Kaczyński said that both he and Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus raised the situation in Georgia during the summit and the fact that Russia has suffered no sanctions in connection with its actions in Georgia. "This is not a good lesson," Kaczyński said.
