    VILNIUS, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Poland wants the European Union to offer Belarus financial assistance of at least 1 billion euros, Prime Minster Mateusz Morawiecki said.

    "The fund should indeed be significant. ... It should be at least 1 billion euros," Morawiecki said in Vilnius after meeting with Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis.

    "It should allow the Belarusian economy, in its current situation, to stabilise and meet investors' expectations so that it again has prospects for issuing new state debt," Morawiecki said. (Reporting by Andrius Sytas; editing by Jason Neely)
