Foreign minister: No reason for Poland to be punished

The Polish government is in dialogue with the European Commission and there is no reason for the country to be punished, Polish head of diplomacy Witold Waszczykowski said on Monday commenting on reports that the Commission is about to issue an opinion on the rule of law in Poland in the coming days.

There is no need to wage a war against Brussels, Waszczykowski told private broadcaster TVN24.

He said he hoped the European Commission would stop the procedure.

Poland’s ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) is ready to accept a far-reaching compromise concerning the Constitutional Tribunal, including gradual incorporation of judges appointed by the previous term of parliament, PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski told weekly magazine Do Rzeczy.
