WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said on Friday that for Poland the key issue in Brexit negotiations is to focus on the rights of Polish citizens in Britain and issues related to the EU budget.

“The Prime Minister expressed expectations that at the first stage of the negotiations it is key to focus on working out good guarantees of the rights of Polish citizens in the United Kingdom, as well as issues related to the EU budget,” Szydlo said in comments emailed to Reuters, following a phone call with Britain’s Theresa May.
