WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said on Friday Poland was not facing international isolation and accused French President Emmanuel Macron of failing to follow developments in central Europe.

Waszczykowski was commenting on Macron’s assertion earlier that Warsaw’s government was isolating itself in Europe.

“Poland is not being isolated,” Waszczykowski told a joint news conference in Warsaw with his Romanian and Turkish counterparts and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

“We are hosting an important meeting today so President Macron is not following carefully the news, doesn’t know what is happening in this part of Europe. But this happens sometimes.”
