President Andrzej Duda said on Sunday that he will convene the Cabinet Council to discuss the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the situation in the Middle East.

The Cabinet Council is convened by the president to discuss matters of particular importance to the state's interest. The Council is formed by the Council of Ministers and chaired by the president.  

The president told the public TV broadcaster TVP Info that he has already informed Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki that the meeting  between the president and the government to discuss the strategy of further actions will be held at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday, January 7 at 2pm.  

Duda pointed out that the meeting will address two issues. "On the one hand, what will happen in the near future, also in Israel, in connection with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, and on the other hand the situation in the Middle East, because, as we know well, Israel is also part of the Middle East, " Duda said.

He added that these are important issues because they concern, among others, "Russian policy that can be expected in this context and "economic topics "." If, there is some escalation in the Middle East, which I hope will not happen, we must be prepared for it, also economically and we have to discuss it ," the president said. (PAP)
