During the meeting, EU-Russia relations and the situation related to the Russian-Georgian conflict were discussed. The Polish President gave an account of his most recent visit to Georgia, in the course of which shots were fired at a motorcade carrying the Polish and Georgian Presidents in the vicinity of the Georgian town of Akhalgori. Furthermore, the two partners discussed current business on the EU agenda and prospects for advancing Polish-Swedish cooperation at the European forum. They also exchanged views on the climate-energy package to be one of the leading subjects at the forthcoming Brussels European Council in December. The ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by EU member states was also discussed. The Polish President offered assurances that Poland would not be an impediment in the process.
