A CONVERSATION WITH PRIME MINISTER OF POLAND MATEUSZ MORAWIECKI - The Atlantic Council hosted a Front Page event featuring Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki on April 13, 2023.
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has unleashed a scale of violence and destruction not seen in Europe since World War II that has fundamentally restructured Europe’s security landscape. At the eastern flank of the transatlantic alliance, Poland plays an even more consequential role in the continent’s security. In response to this newfound geopolitical reality, Poland has recommitted to strengthening its military capacities and its role in the transatlantic alliance. This includes welcoming a permanent US army presence in Poland and pushing for robust support to Ukraine’s defense against Russia’s invasion. Poland has shown leadership in providing military, logistical, and humanitarian support for Ukraine and is advocating forcefully for efforts to facilitate Ukraine’s reconstruction and European integration.
During his travel to the United States, Prime Minister Morawiecki visited the Atlantic Council for a conversation on Europe’s new geopolitical outlook and Poland’s role in the security of Europe, NATO, and the transatlantic alliance.
