Poland’s foreign ministry said on Saturday that it will continue to obey European Union law after the country’s Constitutional Tribunal decided that portions of EU law were incompatible with Poland’s constitution.
On Friday, the verdict threw the European Union into disarray and raised the prospect of Poland exiting the 27-nation organisation.
“Poland has a legal and moral commitment to follow the bloc’s laws totally and unconditionally,” France and Germany said in a joint statement.
Poland’s foreign ministry stated that it adheres to binding international law.
“All obligations arising from both primary and secondary European Union law remain in force and thus, will be continue to be fully respected by Poland,” it said in a statement.
“The provisions of the Treaty of the European Union indicated in the judgment …remain in force. What cannot be accepted are only the forms of their interpretation or application that violate the constitution.”
