WARSAW, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk met with visiting EU president Herman Van Rompuy here on Monday to discuss a wide range of topics such as the upcoming EU summit and Poland's EU presidency in the second half of this year.

Their talks covered not only the forthcoming EU summit on Feb. 4,but also the agenda for the latter half of this year when Poland assumes the EU presidency, Tusk said at a joint briefing with Van Rompuy.

Both the forthcoming summit and those to be held in the second half-year will have to address the financial and economic crisis, Tusk said.

"Thus we have proposed that Poland will submit a report summing up EU actions in this respect at the October summit," he added.

Van Rompuy said his talks with Tusk focused on eurozone stability and energy security in the context of the Feb.4 EU summit, which will be devoted to energy and innovation policy. " Energy security remains a fundamental priority in the EU," he said.

"I am very pleased with Poland's preparations for its EU presidency," Van Rompuy added.
