Tusk Calls for Common Russia Policy

Radio Polonia:

Donald Tusk, leader of the Civic Platform and center-right presidential candidate has said that one of the principle tasks of Polish diplomacy should be convincing EU partners to forge a common Eastern policy. Commenting on the fact of omitting president Aleksander Kwasniewski on the list of invited guests for the gala celebrations marking 750 years of Kaliningrad, the strategic Russian enclave presently bordering with the enlarged EU, Tusk interpreted the move as a Russian attempt to create a division among leading countries of the European Union. The Civic Platform leader also voiced concern with the fact that France and Germany had accepted the invitation, conscious of the omission of neighboring Poland and Lithuania. This proves the two countries will not turn down any chance of practicing their individual policy towards Russia. Poland must display more determination in settling its relations with Russia, he stated.
