Szrot said President Duda supports the position of the Polish government regarding the unilateral extension of the embargo on Ukrainian agricultural imports.
He explained why, “In pursuit of its national interests, Poland decided to close the Polish market to Ukrainian grain, because Poland does not need this grain.
“This grain is very necessary for countries that are at risk of famine as a result of the shocks associated with Russian aggression against Ukraine... and the transportation of this Ukrainian grain flow through Poland to these countries should be facilitated.”
The Polish government have said in their resolution it is their intention to extend the ban on the import of Ukrainian wheat, rapeseed, sunflower and corn, if it is not extended by the European Commission.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal responded and appealed to the arbitration of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) should Poland blocking the export of Ukrainian grain.
