The German chancellor did not want to meet the Polish prime minister, the German president would come to Warsaw only for a few hours. There has never been such a modest celebration of the round anniversary of the Polish-German treaty on a good neighborhood.
"There are too many open cases to organize full-scale Polish-German intergovernmental consultations," a German diplomatic source told "Wyborcza".
The Polish side made such a request to Berlin. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki planned to come with ministers to Berlin on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of signing the treaty on good neighborliness. Chancellor Angela Merkel refused him.
What is this about? Supposedly, about the dispute over Nord Stream 2, through the construction of nuclear power plants in Poland, to the situation in Ukraine.
Relations between the two countries worsened significantly a year ago, during the presidential election campaign. At that time, Fakt daily revealed that President Duda pardoned the pedophile, and PiS decided that the publication of the material was the result of German interfering with Polish politics. There were references to the fact that Fakt was published by a company belonging to a German-Swiss concern. At rallies, Duda shouted that Germany would not elect a Polish president and attacked Philipp Fritz, the Warsaw correspondent of Die Welt daily. Subsequently, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not allow the new German ambassador, Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, to enter Poland.
