Kuchciński: Looking for cooperation, we look not only at the Tri-Moravian countries, but also more broadly

The challenge today is the cooperation and communication of countries on the north-south axis, and not, as so far, based only on building the east-west axis - said Marek Kuchciński, former Speaker of the Sejm, MP in Polish Radio 24. 

Discussions on important issues for Poland and Europe will take place until June 12 at the Kubicki Arcades in Warsaw. “New Europe” – this is the motto of this year's 12th Congress Polska Wielki Projekt. 

The main topic will be the war in Ukraine. Among other things, the participants of the event will talk about new challenges related to the changed security architecture on our continent. There is talk of the Tri-City and our place in Europe.

- All the time we are looking for possibilities and cooperation of countries in Central Europe. Tri-City is an economic project, and Carpathian Europe (Central Europe) are the countries east of the European Union - Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, Caucasus countries and Belarus. So we look not only at Tri-City, but even more broadly. An important principle is: equal with equal and free with free, Germany does not want this, neither does Russia - said Marek Kuchciński.

He added that the French also found it difficult to come to terms with the new situation. In international relations, as the MP reminded, the principle of inviolability of borders must apply, but today it is evident that this is no longer the case. It is therefore necessary to use diplomacy and the media. He cited the example of the American Congress, which came under public pressure and changed the attitude of the American President Joe Biden towards the war in Ukraine.

- As far as we are concerned, however, it can be seen that the need to build communication links on the north-south axis does not disappear. The Russian-German interest was long based on the east-west axis, but this is also changing, because without communication there can be no cooperation. Roads and railroads are the most important, governments and presidents expand them, but under pressure from the public opinion, which is interested in it - said Marek Kuchciński.
