Poland’s PM Mateusz Morawiecki described the EU summit as a “marathon of negotiations” but one in which Poland helped unite Europe and ensure that countries like Italy and Spain could recover from the coronavirus crisis.
Morawiecki may have been absent from Warsaw from Thursday evening until Tuesday morning, but he said he felt that the time spent at the EU summit had been worthwhile.
As a result of the settlement reached at the summit, Poland will receive up to €139 billion in grants and €34 billion in loans.
“These were good, even if difficult, negotiations. They were ones which have brought with them opportunities for development and the plan for reconstruction of Europe,” he said.
