The speaker of the Croatian Sabor began a two-day visit to Poland during which he was scheduled to meet with senior Polish Parliament officials and the chairmen of the committees on European and foreign affairs.

"We discussed EU energy and transport connections along the north-south corridor and developments in eastern Europe and the Ukraine crisis. We agreed on cooperation between the parliaments and parliamentary committees within European projects, and we also discussed the progress of southeastern European countries towards the European Union," Leko told the press.

As regards the crisis in eastern Europe, Leko said that the Polish officials expressed concern about developments in Ukraine and Russian policy in that regard and stressed that Europe should show greater unity in dealing with that problem.

According to Leko, the Polish officials said that a solution to the problem should be based on the principles of international law and should include the restoration of Ukrainian sovereignty over the Russian-occupied part of its territory.
