High level officials from diplomacies of nine countries (Poland, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Austria, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Great Britain) met in Warsaw today (27 June) upon invitation from the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Witold Waszczykowski. The purpose of their meeting was an informal exchange of opinions about developments following Britain’s EU membership referendum and continuation of the European integration project.
The Slovak Republic was represented at the event by Lukáš Parízek, State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, who stated that the reality following from the negative result of the British referendum requires a calm approach from all EU member states that will allow Great Britain’s government to introduce politically-responsible expectations concerning further procedure. “The referendum outcome is not just an internal British matter. The referendum has sent out several important signals to European institutions and also to member state governments particularly about how we communicate towards citizens and what Union we want to build for the future. Obviously, we have to jointly find answers to the benefit of all citizens but answers that will also respect the variety of member states,” noted State Secretary Parízek.
