The Polish President responded to the words of Sergei Ivanov, the head of the Kremlin administration, who said that Russia was ready to cooperate with Western partners, particularly, on the issue of ensuring security in the world, Joinfo.ua reports referring to Polskie Radio.
"There can be no cooperation on the basis of conditions Russia dictates now," Komorowski said.
The Head of Poland reminded the Russian official of Russian annexation of Crimea, considered illegal by Poland, as well as by the EU. "Mr. Ivanov just forgot to tell that Russia would withdraw from Crimea and the Donbas. And stop the policy of aggression against its neighbors. Because if it abandons the policy of aggression, the entire Western world, including Poland, will be interested in creating a relationship based on cooperation. They can not do what they do: just attack the neighbor, rob its land, block its way to the West, and say they are ready to cooperate in other issues," said Komorowski.
He also said that, from the point of view of Poland, the events in Ukraine were the biggest problem in the long term perspective. Komorowski added that itwas a threat to the European order.
According to the Polish President, if Ukraine sees its future with the West, for Poland it will mean an increase in security. If Ukraine will turn to the east – to the contrary.
It should be recalled that May 2, Ivanov said that relations between Russia and the West had deteriorated over the situation in Ukraine. Last July, the EU and the United States moved from the point of sanctions against certain individuals and companies to the measures against the whole sectors of the Russian economy. However, Russia is ready to cooperate with foreign colleagues in the fight against terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as in finding solutions to regional conflicts.
