Prime Minister David Cameron overcame a key obstacle in his bid to seal a new deal on Britain’s membership of the European Union as the leader of Poland’s ruling party declared himself “satisfied” with a plan to be put to a summit of the bloc this month.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who heads the Law & Justice party, said after meeting Cameron in Warsaw Friday that the interests of Poles already living in the U.K. are secured in the proposal announced this week, which would let Britain cut welfare benefits for new migrants. The U.K. will also help boost Poland’s security in NATO and help the Polish government with “absurd” discussions in the EU about the erosion of democracy in Poland, Kaczynski said.
