Poland and USA
Should Poland build a close relationship with the USA?
Should Poland become a close ally with Eastern or Western Europe or choose just the USA? This question was never more actual, more "hot", that it is right now. In a couple of weeks, 7-8 June, 2003, Poles will choose in the referendum whether they want to join European Union or not. The outcome of the referendum is unclear. Although the majority of Poles indicate their moderate support towards joining the EU the turnout may be less than 50% which is necessary for the referendum in Poland to be valid. Since the current government is devoted very much to joining EU the time for the referendum was expanded to two days, which is unusual in Polish political history. There are many reasons to be uncertain about the outcome. We were discussing the benefits and shortcomings of joining European Union in several articles in the past.
