    Current challenges to Euro-Atlantic security, Polish-American cooperation and preparations ahead of the Warsaw NATO summit were the main topics discussed today in Warsaw by Minister Witold Waszczykowski and US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

    “The July summit in Warsaw should lead to the strengthening of the Alliance, its defence capabilities and potential for deterrence, especially on the eastern flank,” stressed the chief of Polish diplomacy. Both sides agreed that NATO needs a long-term adaptation in the institutional, political and military dimensions.

     

    Minister Witold Waszczykowski thanked the US for its active commitment to strengthening the eastern flank of the Alliance. “We count on Washington's leading role in the process of shaping appropriate results of the Warsaw NATO summit, which will improve the security of the entire Euro-Atlantic community,” added the chief of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

     

     

    The talks also discussed the results of the NATO defence ministers meeting in Brussels and the status of implementation of the decisions taken at the NATO summit in Newport. The discussion also focused on the prospects for resolving the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

     

    Next week, during his visit to Washington Minister Witold Waszczykowski will meet with Secretary of State John Kerry.
