Poland's outgoing president to meet his Austrian counterpart

Poland's outgoing president will visit Austria on Friday to meet with his Austrian counterpart, whose country takes over the European Union's rotating presidency in January, officials said Tuesday. Aleksander Kwasniewski, who will be accompanied by his wife, Jolanta Kwasniewska, is scheduled to meet with Austrian President Heinz Fischer and his wife, Margit, in Vienna, Fischer's office said in a statement.

The two leaders will discuss the EU's struggle to adopt a new constitution and budget for 2007-12, Fischer's office said. They also will discuss the situation in the western Balkans and talks now under way on the future status of Kosovo.

Austria's six-month EU presidency begins on Jan. 1. Kwasniewski's term expires on Dec. 23, when newly elected President Lech Kaczynski is due to be formally sworn in. Kwasniewski, who served two terms as Poland's president in 1995-2005, was by law forbidden to run again in Poland's recent presidential elections, reports the AP. I.L.
