Foreign ministers of Poland, Germany and Russia will meet in Kaliningrad of Russia in May, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said Wednesday.

"Russia is a very important partner for the EU and we want to discuss the EU-Russia partnership also with Germany on the eve of Poland's EU presidency (later half of the year)," Sikorski said at a press conference in Warsaw.

The ministers will also discuss the issue of cross-border traffic between Poland and Russia's Kaliningrad district, he said. The text of an agreement between Poland and Russia is ready.

In order for the agreement to be signed, the EU must amend its decree on cross-border traffic, Sikorski said. Poland is looking forward to the amendment and hoped it would recognize the "special situation of the Kaliningrad enclave," he added.

Poland would like the amendment to admit cross-border traffic in the entire area of the enclave and a corresponding area of Poland. The Kalinigrad district is 108 km long vertically and 205 km long horizontally.
