Poland's President Lech Kaczynski says he will not sign the EU's reform treaty at present, following its defeat in an Irish referendum last month.
He said it would be "pointless" to sign the Lisbon Treaty, even though Poland's parliament has ratified it. All 27 EU members must ratify the document.
Mr Kaczynski was speaking as France took over the EU's rotating presidency.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said "something isn't right" with the EU and warned citizens may be losing faith.
The BBC's Jonny Diamond in Brussels says Mr Kaczynski now appears to have joined his Czech counterpart in openly opposing treaty ratification.
Czech President Vaclav Klaus and many lawmakers are cool on ratification.
