Polish Minister says ‘France is now the sick man of Europe’ while Poland is a ‘bright spot’

Poland’s foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz bemoans the ‘sad’ France situation. He mentioned the jihadist attack, where a French jihadist killed five during an attack near Strasbourg Christmas market, and the Yellow Vests protests having made France Europe’s ‘sick man’.

Mr. Czaputowicz asserts that the ‘Yellow Vests’ protests and last week’s jihadist attack made France a ‘drag on Europe’ while Poland is a bright spot.

France and Poland have maintained an icy relationship ever since the populist Law and Justice (PiS) government came to power in Poland in 2015. As well, Macron has criticised Poland’s reforms, which according to the European Union, pose a threat to the independence of the judiciary.

“The terrorist attack proves that something is not right in France, the protests over the past weeks, President Macron’s withdrawal of state reforms – it’s sad,” the minister said.

“If at the same time, you’re lecturing Poland, there is something not right. First you have to bring some order to your own country”. Czaputowicz added.

He has a point.
