    Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski told RIA Novosti in an interview that he hopes to hold a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York in September.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — "I hope also that there will be a chance to meet personally Mr. Lavrov for instance in September in the UN headquarters in New York, also to continue the discussion, the consultations on the security issues, on the [UN] Security Council issues in New York. So maybe this is a chance to reopen the dialogue between Poland and Moscow on a number of issues, because for the next two years in 2018 and 2019 we are going to be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council," Waszczykowski said.

    According to the diplomat, he hops to discuss a number of UN-related issues and later the bilateral agenda.

    Waszczykowski added that when Poland was elected to become a non-permanent member of the UNSC he had received a letter of congratulations from Lavrov that preceded a number of positive consultations between the officials of the two foreign ministries.
