    On March 27, Poland's Ambassador Zbigniew Gniatkowski presented letters of credence to the President of the Republic of Kiribati Taneti Maamau.

    In his speech, Ambassador Z. Gniatkowski talked about Poland's history and its role in the world. He reminded that Poland was contesting to become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for 2018-19. As a member of the EU, Poland is active in the Pacific region through EDF development assistance provided to island countries. Poland will host the COP24 Climate Conference in 2018.

     

    Referring to bilateral relations (diplomatic relations with Kiribati were established in March 2015), the Ambassador referred to the history of the village called Poland, as well as the experience of young Kiribati pilgrims, who took part in the World Youth Day in Krakow last year.
     

    The visit’s program included meetings with Kiribati Government representatives and visits to the current EU projects. The Polish Ambassador met with the youth who visited Poland for WYD (a group of 26 pilgrims led by Bishop of Kiribati and a Polish-born seminarian Przemyslaw) and paid a visit to an elementary school in Tarawa.
