Poland convenes Visegrad quartet meeting

Warsaw, Apr 26 (Prensa Latina) Poland on Monday convened a virtual urgent meeting of the so-called Visegrad quartet (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic) to analyze issues related to Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

After several weeks faced with internal protests against legislation to prohibit abortion, the Polish Government advocates for a meeting of prime ministers of the aforementioned group to discuss issues beyond its borders.

Amid a growing hostile policy against Russia, including the deployment of US troops in Poland, Warsaw joined accusations made by other Western nations of alleged destabilization actions by Moscow.

In addition, the Belarusian Government blamed Poland for promoting and organizing demonstrations by opponents, after the August 2020 elections, local press highlights.

In the framework of the Polish presidency of the Visegrad group, formed in 1991, the head of Government Mateusz Morawiecki convened the meeting, Deputy Foreign Minister Shimon Shinkovsky Vel Senk posted on Twitter.

The issues announced are the alleged Russia’s involvement in an explosion in a Czech ammunition dump in 2014, something that the Eurasian country rejected, the situation in Ukraine and Belarus, and cooperation to guarantee regional security.

Belarus denounced last week an attempted attack against President Alexander Lukashenko and a failed coup, for which it blames the US intelligence services to a large extent.
