COPENHAGEN, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen on Friday met his Polish counterpart Beata Szydlo who is on an official visit to Denmark.

The meeting is part of the ongoing dialogue between Denmark and Poland on common challenges and interests, including security policy and European policy issues, energy cooperation and trade, according to a statement issued by Rasmussen's office ahead of the meeting.

"Poland is our neighbor in the Baltic region, our ninth largest export market and an important partner in the EU and NATO," Rasmussen said in the statement.

During their meeting, the two prime ministers talked about issues regarding a proposed gas pipeline between Denmark and Poland and a memorandum for the supply of gas to Poland from the North Sea has since been signed.

EU after Brexit is also on the agenda of the meeting.

"It is important that all 27 countries stick together, so we can provide solutions to the concrete problems Europeans are experiencing," Rasmussen said in the statement.

While in Denmark, Szydlo also attended an investment seminar where she met executives from the Danish food, IT, energy and health sectors.
