Polish PM calls for ‘good compromise’ on Brexit


London—Poland’s prime minister called Monday for a Brexit “compromise” and said Europeans in Britain and Britons in Europe should not be “made to feel like hostages” as she kicked off a landmark trip to London.
Britain’s shock vote in June to leave the European Union sparked fear among the 800,000 Poles living in Britain, particularly following a spate of xenophobic attacks after the referendum.
Beata Szydlo pledged Poland would be a “constructive partner” in potentially fraught negotiations to set the terms of Britain’s divorce from the EU, but that London had to set out a clear vision for its post-EU future.
“We need a good compromise which gives both our countries the best possible options for economic and security cooperation,” she wrote in Monday’s Daily Telegraph.—AFP
