(ANSA) - KRYNICA ZDROJ, SEPT.6- ''The European Union is at a crossroads: we need to think not only about successes, but also mistakes, from which we have to draw the consequences'', said the Polish Senate speaker, Stanislaw Karczewski, during a conference focusing on 'Europe - yesterday, today, tomorrow' during the 28th Krynica Zdròj Economic Forum (Poland). The Forum was also attended by the EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Citizenship, Tibor Navracsics (from Hungary), Latvia's foreign minister Edgars Rinkevics, Lithuania's economy minister Virginijus Sinkevicius, and the Romanian Senate speaker Calin Popescu Triceanu.

As for unity within the EU, some talks focused on Brexit, which is considered a mistake by all the participants. Talking about the future, the Polish Senate speaker Karczewski underlined ''the negative aspects of two-speed Europe and the reduced concern for security, in a broad sense''. According to Navracsics, the positive aspects of the EU include ''the achievement of economic well-being''. ''Moreover - he added - we can not forget the Erasmus program, which has allowed many young people to go abroad, raising their awareness about European citizenship''. (ANSA).
