Poland's new prime minister is looking to improve strained relations with partners in the European Union when he arrives in Brussels Tuesday.The Polish government's stance on justice reform and immigration has prompted so much unease within the EU that a procedure to strip the country of voting rights in the 28-nation bloc has been started.The EU already faces a serious rebel in Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, with his staunch opposition to the EU's migration policies.However, Poland has no interest in escalating the crisis either as any road to EU departure could threaten the billions the country receives from EU coffers. In the 2014-2020 budget, Poland has been allocated 86 billion euros ($103 billion) in EU structural and investment funds.
