Polish Acting President Bronislaw Komorowski Thursday announced the appointment of a new National Security Council consisting of the prime minister, government ministers, the speakers of both parliamentary houses and politicians.

Komorowski said that he will formally appoint the Council on Monday after consultations with political leaders. Its main task will be to monitor national security, foreign policy and military issues.

According to Komorowski, the new Council's first meeting should focus on the circumstances of the April 10 air disaster in Smolensk, Russia which killed Poland's former President Lech Kaczynski and a large group of VIPs.

"We must get to the core of why this happened, how it was possible that so many people in important state positions could board a single aircraft," Komorowski said, quoted by the PAP news agency.

He added that the Council would also work on new directions in Polish foreign policy, especially in light of the warming between Poland and Russia after the Smolensk crash.

"We must try to build on this special climate which has developed in Polish-Russian relations," Komorowski said.
