Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, who burnished his credentials in the Ukraine crisis, is now in the spotlight over leaks in which he appears to criticize Polish-US ties and Britain's prime minister.

Poland recently floated the 51-year-old Oxford-educated former war correspondent to succeed Catherine Ashton, whose term as European Union foreign policy chief ends this year.

But remarks leaked on Monday by Poland's Wprost weekly attributed to Sikorski in a private conversation with former finance minister Jacek Rostowski could undermine his ambitions.
