WARSAW, Poland (AP) — French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Poland’s leaders have stressed the need for the Minsk peace deal to be observed in eastern Ukraine.

Valls met in Warsaw on Thursday with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz to discuss the conflict in Ukraine, across Poland’s eastern border, and also security in Europe.

“We want the Minsk (peace) agreement to be implemented, meaning a stop to hostilities and disarmament,” Valls said. “A war on the European Union’s doorstep is something very serious and worrisome. We can see that European stability and peace are threatened.”

Kopacz and Komorowski shared his views.

Valls also attended a Polish-French trade forum.

On Wednesday, he visited memorials in Gdansk to the Solidarity freedom movement and to workers killed by the communist regime.
