PiS must not spurn Europe

Many Western European media have been critical of the PiS and the anti-European statements of party leader Jarosław Kaczyński. But politicians in Western Europe will be only too happy to work together with the new Polish government, the conservative daily Rzeczpospolita believes: "Europe looks entirely different than it did in 2005 when the PiS came to power the first time. The EU has been seriously shaken by the financial crisis. Now it faces a double challenge: Russian aggression and the flood of refugees. ... Under such conditions, Chancellor Merkel and President Hollande will go to great lengths to maintain the strategic partnership with Poland, also under the new government. Because at the moment they don't have all too many allies. The new government must do what it can to not to waste this opportunity. If it manages to avoid taking radical measures in the coming months and holds the country on its stable course, Berlin, Paris and London will not only heave a sigh of relief but even welcome it with open arms."
