Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki criticizes incumbent German Chancellor Angela Merkel for calling the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
According to him, Merkel “contributed to the legitimization of his regime”. He claims that this happened against the background of the fact that “the fight for a free Belarus has lasted for 15 months”. The European Union, as the Polish Prime Minister emphasized, should be involved in finding a diplomatic solution.
As a result, Morawiecki noted that the Belarusian leader had “abused” the conversation with Merkel. He pretended to agree to transporting 2,000 illegal migrants to Germany and other countries.
Merkel and Lukashenko met on November 15 and 17. They addressed the migration crisis at the EU's borders. As a result, the parties agreed on ways to solve the problem. It was decided that the representatives of both parties should start negotiations immediately in order to resolve the crisis. These representatives will also discuss the refugees' wishes to go to Germany.
At the same time, Merkel noted that the Belarusian leader is indeed the contact person in the migration crisis. However, this does not deny the fact that Berlin considers the results of the presidential election in Belarus to be illegitimate.
