PM meeting with Prime Minister Szydło: 29 September 2017

Prime Minister Theresa May met with Polish Prime Minister Szydło, while in Estonia.


A Downing Street spokesperson said:

“Prime Minister Theresa May and Prime Minister Beata Szydło this afternoon held a bilateral meeting at the Tallinn Digital Summit in Estonia.

The Polish Prime Minister welcomed last week’s Florence speech and stressed the importance of reaching an early settlement on citizens’ rights.

PM May said this was a shared priority, good progress was being made in the talks and that she wanted to give certainty to Polish and other EU citizens living in the UK.

PM Szydło and PM May agreed on the importance of Poland having a strong relationship with the UK after Brexit, pointing to the two countries’ many shared projects, family ties and history.

The two leaders agreed the next UK-Poland Summit will take place in Poland on December 21.

The bilateral summit - the second of its kind - will bring together senior ministers from both countries to discuss cooperation in areas such as foreign affairs, defence and security, and trade and investment.”
