Polish Foreign Minister confirms that his country has the experience that will help in addressing such issues.

Schetyna wants to join talks
Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna considers that negotiations for solutions in Ukraine should be held in the "Weimar format" with the participation of France, Germany, and Poland.

"It is better to solve Ukrainian problems in "Weimar format" - Poland, Germany and France - because we have the most knowledge and experience," Schetyna said in his interview to Gazeta Wyborcza, UNIAN wrote.

"We should take part in the every serious conversation about the future of Ukraine and search for answers how to complete a conflict. It is the same to talk about Ukraine without Poland as if the issue of Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco would be talked without Italy, France and Spain," Polish Foreign Minister said.

Schetyna said that on the initiative of the previous Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski Foreign Ministers of Germany and France had agreed to come to Kyiv in February for talks with former President Viktor Yanukovych and those negotiations ended with an agreement between the government and the opposition.

"They were able to complete the bloodshed when snipers fired on unarmed demonstrators. They stopped even greater tragedy, as Yanukovych has lost control of the situation. It was the biggest success of the West in Ukraine this year," Schetyna said.

Earlier, the Foreign Ministry of Poland stated that West would toughen sanctions against Russia, if Kremlin did not yield.
