Poland’s president to visit White house in mid-September

WARSAW, Poland — An aide to President Andrzej Duda says the Polish leader and first lady will meet with President Donald Trump at the White House on Sept. 18.

Aide Krzysztof Szczerski said Tuesday that Duda’s first visit to the White House will include one-on-one talks with Trump on security in Central Europe and on strengthening the U.S. military presence in the region, which is worried by intensifying Russian military activity. Wider talks are to address trade ties and the partnership between the two NATO allies.

Poland was Trump’s first destination during his European trip last year and Poland’s right-wing government attaches great importance to the relationship.

U.S. First Lady Melania Trump will host her Polish counterpart Agata Kornhauser-Duda for a meeting.
