President Andrzej Duda on Friday met with leaders of Poland's churches and religious organisations as well as ethnic and national minorities for a New Year's get-together in the Presidential Palace

"I'm very pleased, because this meeting of ours is a very important element of the existence of the Polish community, but first of all it is a beautiful manifestation of the shape, colourfulness and greatness of our community of Poland's citizens, those who live on Polish soil and those who live in a tradition that has been shaped here over centuries, very often for over a thousand years," President Duda said in his address.

Andrzej Duda noted that churches and religious organisations as well as ethnic and national minorities have also been present on Polish territories for centuries. (PAP)
