In a HARDtalk interview shown on 29th April 2008, Stephen Sackur talks to Radek Sikorski, Poland's Foreign Minister

Poland joined the European Union four years ago with big ambitions to be a

powerful new voice on Europe's top table.

But on a range of key issues from Iraq to Afghanistan to missile defence Polish leaders have appeared to look first to Washington rather than Brussels.

Radek Sikorski is Polandís foreign minister.

Is there now a shift in Warsaw's strategic direction?

Hardtalk can also be seen on BBC News at 04:30 & 23:30.
