Warsaw is hoping that French President-elect Emmanuel Macron's criticism of one of the prominent Polish politicians remains in the past and a new relationship with Paris may be built, Krzysztof Szczerski, the foreign policy adviser to Polish President Andrzej Duda, said Monday.

Why is France's Macron Threatening Poland With Sanctions?
WARSAW (Sputnik) — Last week, Macron said that Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party was one of the main allies of Macron's presidential rival Marine Le Pen, and accused him of restricting democratic freedoms.

"I will ask our diplomatic mission in Paris today to get me in touch with Macron's foreign policy adviser, whom I met a few months ago in Paris and with whom I had a good talk over an hour and a half long… I hope… to continue this talk that began in February. That is what we do as diplomats… to make words said during the campaign history and to start building new diplomatic Polish-French relations with the new French president," Szczerski told the TVP broadcaster.

On Tuesday, Poland's Foreign Ministry said that "counting Jaroslaw Kaczynski among the group of 'Le Pen’s friends who are violating many freedoms' is wrong and inappropriate."

According to the French Interior Ministry, Macron won the second round of the election with 66.1 percent of the votes.
