Witold Waszczykowski said the European Commission took “hasty, irresponsible and not-fully thought through steps” in response to the mass influx of migrants from across Iraq, Syria and other war-torn nations.His damning criticism of the Brussels bloc comes just a day after Germany, Poland and France agreed to bridge their differences over migration and other issues.

The three nations are due to show their support for the Brussels bloc by reinvigorating the Weimar Triangle, a trilateral group founded after the end of the Cold War.The group is meant to promote co-operation between the three nations.

Mr Waszczykowski has been damning in his criticism of the EU, blaming Brussels for Britain’s vote to leave.

Following Brexit, he said: “We think that today the European institutions should start to admit they made a mistake.”There is this atmosphere that has been expressed by the British society, that the call of, for example, Mr Juncker from a few months ago for politicians to break away from their electorates and to take care of the European concept, has been rejected.”

The Polish minister has also criticised other EU countries for not securing their own external borders, and said such practices have not been allowed for many years.

He said: “We are now discovering with surprise that there are double standards in the European migration policy.”Poland has been criticised by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but deputy foreign minister Konrad Szymanski said his party were in line with public opinion.

Symanski said: “I believe it is harmful to Europe and is already bringing far-reaching opposition.”
