President Andrzej Duda will in person renew an invitation for US President Donald Trump to visit Poland in September for the observances of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, presidential spokesperson Blazej Spychalski said.
The meeting between the two presidents is scheduled in Washington on June 12.
"We can confirm that President Andrzej Duda will personally forward the invitation to President Donald Trump to September 1 observances, and we hope that President Trump will be in Poland on 1 September," Spychalski told a catholic radio broadcaster "Siodma9".
The president's spokesperson added that besides Trump, leaders of many other countries are invited to Poland, including the leaders of the European Union and NATO member states and the Eastern Partnership countries as well as the UN Secretary General. "We are talking about countries that are close partners of Poland and countries that have largely suffered in this gigantic tragedy of the Second World War," Spychalski said.
At this stage, the President's Office does not yet have information who of the invited leaders will come to Poland on 1 September.
President Andrzej Duda and First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda will start a six-day US trip with a meeting with US first couple Donald Trump and Melania Trump at the White House on June 12.
This will be the second Duda-Trump meeting at the White House. The previous one was held in autumn last year.
Between June 13-17, the Polish first couple will visit Texas, Nevada and California, where Duda will hold talks on energy and new technologies. (PAP)
