Polish PM calls for transatlantic unity on troop deployments and China

By David A. Wemer

Speaking at an Atlantic Council Front Page event, Morawiecki argued that “the NATO alliance is so important for the world to keep peace,” that allies must continue to work toward “consensus” in their actions.

Coronavirus European Union

The Atlantic Council hosted a conversation with His Excellency Mateusz Morawiecki, Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, on a critical moment for Poland, Central Europe, and the transatlantic community. We explored the successes of Poland’s handling of the coronavirus, what this crisis means for Central Europe in the context of the European Union’s post-crisis future, the Polish presidential election, and Poland’s role in the transatlantic relationship.

The Atlantic Council’s Future Europe Initiative was pleased to present this show as part of their mission to inform and influence the response to the global crisis. From publishing timely commentary and analysis across the continent to providing a transatlantic platform for European leaders driving the crisis response, the Atlantic Council is combining foreign policy, economic, and business expertise to help re-imagine the post COVID-19 world.
