PARIS (dpa-AFX) – In view of the crisis surrounding migrants at the EU’s external border, French President Emmanuel Macron has called for journalists to have free access to the Polish side of the border. The Elysée Palace announced on Wednesday after Macron’s meeting with Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Poland does not currently allow journalists to enter the border area.

Macron also reiterated solidarity with Poland in the face of the destabilization of the border. France stands ready to contribute to general security and supports a humanitarian operation on the ground, said the Elysée Palace. In addition, the question of the rule of law was a topic of conversation. Macron had expressed concern and urged Poland to comply with EU law.

Morawiecki said he had spoken to Macron about the fears associated with several actions taking place at the same time, the PAP news agency reported. “On the one hand, of course, this is the situation on our eastern border, which is at the same time the eastern border of NATO (…) and the EU. By defending it, we are defending the EU.” The other is the concentration of Russian army units on the border with Ukraine and blackmail over the price of gas. “All of these actions should lead to an answer – and this answer is the solidarity of the EU.”
