A number of common areas of interest will be on the agenda when Poland’s prime minister, Beata Szydlo, visits the Danish PM Lars Løkke Rasmussen on Friday.

The meeting is part of an ongoing dialogue between the two countries on issues such as security, European questions, co-operation on energy matters and mutual trade.

One of the issues is a proposed gas pipeline between Denmark and Poland for which tenders were put out last week. At the meeting, the two prime ministers will decide what the next step will be.

Regarding the meeting, Rasmussen said that “the EU after Brexit is also on the agenda. It is important that all 27 countries stick together so we can deliver solutions to the concrete problems faced by Europeans.”
