The President of Malta receives the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland
President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca received the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland, Witold Waszczykowsi, on a courtesy call at The Palace, Valletta.
On the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference attended by the two ministers, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Alfonso Dastis, held a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Mohamed Javad Zarif.
The ministers welcomed the good state of bilateral relations and agreed that there is extensive scope for stepping up these relations. In this regard, Minister Zarif invited Alfonso Dastis to visit Iran.
They then tackled the issue of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, taken on by the rest of the international community in United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 (2015) and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which they both argued should be kept in place and complied with.
The two ministers also addressed the main issues on the international agenda, with particular attention on the fight against the terrorist group DAESH and the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.
In relation to the fight against DAESH in Iraq, the ministers analysed the weakened military capabilities of the terrorist group DAESH and agreed on the need to continue fighting the group until it is totally eradicated, to consolidate the reconciliation between all the ethnic and religious communities in the country and to forge stability and boost reconstruction in order to return peace and prosperity to the population.
Minister Dastis reiterated Spain’s position on the conflict in Syria, which must be resolved through a negotiated transition in line with the provisions of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254.
Alfonso Dastis expressed Spain’s grave concern at the escalation of the conflict in Yemen, which is only adding to the already disastrous humanitarian situation.
