The presidents also discussed the reconstruction of post-war Ukraine in the future. Pavel pointed to the importance of the process also from the point of view of countries participating in the process.

“It is going to be a reconstruction, a reconstruction of a country devastated by war, but it is also going to be a tremendous opportunity for all economies participating in the reconstruction,” he said, indicating that it is important to reach an agreement so that individual countries do not compete with each other in this area.

Andrzej Duda also also thanked Pavel for the “very good conditions that are created for the Polish minority in the Czech Republic,” pointing to opportunities for cultural development and education. “I asked Mr President to exercise such a kind of patronage over these matters,” he said.

“I hope that, over the next few years, while I am still President of Poland, we will cooperate well and closely, building these Polish-Czech relations on the best possible path,” Duda told his counterpart.
