Chancellor Angela Merkel and Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk are to preside over government talks on Tuesday and also hold a one—on—one meeting

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and members of her Cabinet are in Warsaw for a joint session to mark 20 years of the cooperation treaty between the neighbours that have a troubled past.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk are to preside over government talks on Tuesday and also hold a one—on—one meeting. They will discuss developing fast railway connections and pipeline links between Poland and Germany, as well as culture and science cooperation.

Other themes include the European Union’s future budget and a bailout for Greece, threatened with national debt default. Poland takes the rotating EU presidency on July 1.

Poland and Germany signed the treaty in 1991, shortly after communism was ousted from Poland and the eastern part of Germany.
