To deal with the consequences of the financial crisis will be a priority during Poland's European Union presidency starting from this July, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Monday.

"I hope that the coming months of the Polish presidency will show strong foundations of friendship between Poland and European institutions," Tusk told a press conference in Brussels.

Local Polish media reported that Tusk made the remarks as he attended the opening of the new seat of Poland's permanent representation to the EU.

He stressed that addressing the financial crisis will take much time. "We all know what has been going on in recent years, months or even hours. When we analyze the situation on markets we know it will require constant concentration and cooperation," the prime minister said.

"The Polish presidency will face a special challenge. Poland is outside the euro zone but has joined the Euro Plus pact and we would like to help, to the best of our abilities, avert results of the crisis by cooperation between European institutions. In this field our cooperation is traditionally good and intensive," Tusk said.
