BRUSSELS, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Poland's prime minister called on his country's delegation to the European Union summit to stay united despite a fractious political feud.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk flew to Brussels separately from President Lech Kaczynski, whom Poland Radio said had to charter a plane because the government refused to provide him one.

Tusk said Poland needed to speak with one voice at the summit although he and Kaczynski have strong differences of opinion on matters, such as climate change, that will be on the EU agenda.

Poland Radio said a recent newspaper poll found 85 percent of Poles feared the feud between president and prime minister was tarnishing their country's image abroad.
