Poland's Kaczynski says EU on path towards disintegration

Szydlo said the other European Union countries had ignored Poland's valid reasons to oppose Tusk's re-election.
The leaders will meet again on Friday, minus May, to prepare for a "unity" summit to be held in Rome on March 25, the 60th anniversary of the treaty that laid the EU's foundation.
Szydlo made the comments after Donald Tusk, her compatriot but political foe, was given a second term to chair the European Union summits by all the other 27 European Union states despite Poland's objections.
"We are disappointed with the European Commission White Paper".
Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo had instead asked for all to support Jacek Saryusz-Wolski, a member of the European Parliament.
Poland appears to have won no support, but the other leaders will still be keen to avoid a public bust-up with the EU's biggest post-communist state just weeks before the bloc enters its seventh decade.
