He also noted that Duda would pay considerable attention to the Three Seas Initiative, which he launched, and support the Belarusian opposition, led by Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

The official said that next year, Duda will also be proactive beyond Europe. Noting that Poland is one of Europe’s largest countries, it can afford more global policies. According to Kumoch, the Polish leader plans to be more proactive in sub-Saharan Africa, South America, and the Asia-Pacific region.
