POLAND’s foreign minister has accused Brussels of punishing the British people over Brexit as he argued the EU must accept some of the blame for the UK's vote to leave and MUST undergo ‘deep reform’ if it hopes to keep the bloc together.
Foreign minister Jack Czaputowicz pledged Poland's support for Britain's "sovereign decision" to leave the EU.
Mr Czaputowicz said: “Poland is definitely against attempts to condemn or punish the British for their decisions.
The foreign minister added Britain’s decision to quit the bloc was partly due to “deficiencies” in EU institutions.
And instead of seeking to punish the British people, Brussels needed to accept the UK's withdrawal, he said.
He added: “Brexit is a result of a sovereign decision of the British but also the wrong policies of the European Union and of deficiencies existing here in European institutions.”
Mr Czaputowicz also expressed support for Britain and their decision to leave the EU.
He said Poland would support Theresa May if she asked for more time to conclude the Brexit negotiations, despite the increased tension between her and her party members.
