"After 1.5 decades in the NATO and a full decade in the EU, our countries may have different views on some issues. But we still share many goals, and working together towards them can still bring a lot of added value. Energy security seems to be one of the biggest of them – and our top priority“ – Jerzy Buzek said in his speech.
