Spokesperson of Polish President says Duda’s visit to Ukraine helped reduce tensions between two countries

The visit of Poland’s President Andrzej Duda to Ukraine was aimed at "reducing tensions," that have appeared over the past few months, and this mission has been accomplished, the President’s spokesman Krzysztof Łapiński stated on the air of Radio Warszawa, reports Onet.pl.

He also noted that Poland's relations with Ukraine "should be built on the basis of historical truth."

"The falsification of history must not be accepted," Łapiński believes.

He also stated that [Andrzej] Duda and Petro Poroshenko had an opportunity to discuss in private many issues that were not mentioned during their joint press conference. However, according to Łapiński, it is still difficult to define the time frame for improving the Polish-Ukrainian relations.

"Let's see how the negotiations between the ministers of culture will take place," he said.

On December 13th, Duda visited Kharkiv. The sides agreed to upgrade the level of bilateral historical dialogue and to transfer a number of issues to be resolved by the Vice Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Poland, Pavlo Rozenko and Piotr Gliński, respectively.
