Ryszard Terlecki, a deputy Speaker of the Polish parliament and a member of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, told a conference: "We say very firmly: we do not want a two-speed EU.”

He added: “We do not want to return to a time when Europe was divided. And if Germany, France, the strongest players in the EU, decide that such a division is the most convenient option for them and push it through, then we say: We will mobilise in Eastern and Central Europe."

Terlecki was speaking at the 11th Europe-Ukraine Forum in Jasionka, south-eastern Poland.

He said that countries in Central and Eastern Europe were “very attached to their sovereignty” and respect values “​​which today in Western Europe are being rejected by the liberal establishment."

He added: "In our part of Europe we respect religion, while in Western Europe religion is disregarded or even pushed out of the public sphere."
