WARSAW, January 25. /TASS/. A Polish screenwriter and film producer has been identified as a possible key player in helping rebuild bridges broken in relations between Warsaw and Moscow, radio listeners have been told.
Creative director Krzysztof Zanussi has been slated to drive possible mechanisms for re-establishing Poland-Russia ties, Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski told TOK FM radio station on Monday, announcing to his audience that "Russians say they want to resume some form of dialogue previously existing".
The minister was speaking after talks between the two states’ deputy foreign ministers in Moscow on January 22, observing to listeners on prospects for reviving a forum for Russian and Polish citizens’ dialogue, headed by Zanussi. This gathered in 2012 to assemble figures from culture, politics and the media.
"We met earlier and discussed the possibility of re-establishing it," Waszczykowski told the station. "I am going to call him and find out whether he can create a group for the dialogue," he said, warning, however, that Warsaw would not make any bilateral agreements with Moscow.
"Russia is a geopolitical opponent of the European Union and NATO," the minister said. "It is hard to find any compromise with Russia as it has an implacable position towards Poland."
