Poland doubtful about EU army proposal

Poland has doubts about the proposed joint European Union armed forces, Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz said after meeting her French counterpart, Manuel Valls in Warsaw on Thursday.

Poland sees NATO as the chief guarantee of security, she added, and is concerned about costly duplication of functions and confusion over lines of command. The European Union wants to restore peace in Ukraine via negotiations and, if necessary, sanctions, Kopacz also said.

After the meeting, the Polish and French government heads told reporters the EU backs the Minsk agreement between Russia and Ukraine, negotiated with the participation of France and Germany.

The European Commission is working on ever more painful economic sanctions against Russia in the event ceasefire violations continue, Kopacz said.
