Problems within coalition should be resolved soon: Polish PM
font size    

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski on Tuesday, said that problems within the ruling coalition, which sprang from differences over next year's budget and sending more troops to Afghanistan should be solved "very quickly."

Kaczynski commented on deputy PM Andrzej Lepper's statement about the possibility of early elections, and critical remarks about plans to increase the number of the Polish military contingent in Afghanistan.

Earlier in the day, Self-Defence party parliamentary caucus lodged with the lower house Sejm speaker Marek Jurek, two draft resolutions on sending new troops to Afghanistan and on withdrawal of Polish soldiers from Iraq.

The Self-Defence, a junior coalition partner, has also demanded to raise spending in next year's budget and argued Poland could not afford costly military commitments.

Kaczynski criticized Self-Defence's plans to file a parliamentary motion to reverse the defence ministry's decision to send a 1,000 troops to Afghanistan, next February.

"Poland has to keep its commitments in order to be accepted by all, as a normal state. Troops on a mission in Afghanistan is an old commitment of Poland," Kaczynski said.

Kaczynski said that any debate on the decision of sending additional troops to Afghanistan was pointless because the decision would not be changed, adding that the change of the decision would seriously undermine Poland's positions in the world.
