According to the government’s press office, the conversation at the farewell meeting encompassed the work of the EUMM. The Head of Government thanked Marek Szczygieł for the mission’s effective performance and implemented activities. It was noted that the EUMM works toward preventing the escalation of the situation along the occupation line and buttresses security on the ground.
