Following an official welcome ceremony President Andrzej Duda and President Ueli Maurer were scheduled to hold a face-to-face conversation to be followed by plenary talks of both countries' delegations, co-chaired by both presidents.

 

 

 

Following the talks, Andrzej Duda and Ueli Maurer are to hold a joint press conference.

 

 

President Andrej Duda, after talks with President Ueli Maurer on Tuesday, said he asked his Swiss counterpart to take steps so that the Polish Museum in Rapperswil could continue its mission.

 

Andrzej Duda, speaking at a press conference, stressed that the museum is not only a trace of the common Polish-Swiss history, but also a very important testimony to the history of Europe. "I would like the museum to continue its mission at the castle in Rapperswil and we would like it to exist as a Polish Museum," said the president.

 

 

The president, noted that the Polish side is aware that decisions in this regard rest with local authorities, still he has turned to the Swiss president for support. "I hope that the president (...) will provide such support" added Andrzej Duda.

 

The Polish Museum in Rapperswil was founded on October 23, 1870 by Polish aristocrat Wladysław Broel-Plater as a refuge for Polish historic memorabilia, which were endangered in then partitioned Poland. The museum is housed in Rapperswil Castle currently owned by the city of Rapperswil.

 

The two presidents will also take part in a special ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Polish-Swiss diplomatic ties.

 

Later in the day, President Ueli Maurer will meet with Sejm Speaker Marek Kuchciński.(PAP)
