Warsaw, 27 June: President Kwasniewski described the decision not to invite Polish and Lithuanian officials to the ceremonies marking the 750th anniversary of Kaliningrad as something more than a mistake. “This has been incomprehensible for us,” the president told TVN 24 on Monday [27 June].
Kaliningrad will celebrate its 750th anniversary 1-3 July 2005. The programme of the ceremonies provides for a trilateral meeting of the Russian, German and French leaders.
The president said that both Gerhard Schroeder and Jacques Chirac had their own reasons and would surely attend the celebrations.
