Poland is a model for Ukrainian reforms and its position on Ukraine is very important, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said.
"Poland is a close country to us. Poland is a model for reforms. You have demonstrated that - if you begin reforms and go a very difficult way, and these reforms may not be perceived at the first stage, but yielded real results - you can become a member of the European Union. You demonstrated that," he said after a meeting with Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz in Warsaw.
Yatseniuk emphasized that "the voice and position of Poland on Ukraine in the countries of the EU are super-important." "We are asking for more Poland in the Ukrainian issue. We all know that few people in the world understand us like you do," he said.
The Ukrainian prime minister also said that Poland did not just become an EU member, "but became one of the main drivers of EU economic development in the past eight years."
Yatseniuk is now on a working visit to Warsaw. He is scheduled to meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda on Sept.8.
