Sikorski Off-The-Record

An illegal wiretap leaked at a seemingly perfect moment has complicated the bid of Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski to succeed Catherine Ashton as EU foreign policy chief. In a private conversation loaded with expletives, Sikorski had called Poland’s relationship with the US “worthless” in January 2014. In June 2014, Obama pledged $1bn in additional military spending to Poland and other NATO neighbors of the Ukraine. Sikorski has also been mentioned as a potential NATO or UN Secretary General.
