VARNA, Bulgaria (AP) — Poland’s prime minister is dismissing as arrogant French President Emmanuel Macron’s criticism of her government over its position on the reform of European Union labor rules, and accusing France of trying to “take apart one of the pillars of the EU.”

During a visit to Bulgaria Friday, Macron sharply criticized Warsaw over its opposition to his plans to reform rules under which companies can temporarily post employees in wealthier EU member states at cheaper wages. Prime Minister Beata Szydlo told the wPolitice website Friday that Macron’s words were “arrogant,” advising him to be “more restrained” and “mind the business of his own country.”

She said that “the future of Europe will not be decided by the president of France, or by any other individual leader but jointly, by all the member states.”
