President to UN General Assembly, bilateral talks


Attendance at the 70th UN General Assembly session and bilateral talks with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will be among the highlights of President Andrzej Duda's New York visit starting this weekend.


President Duda will also meet New York's Polish community in the Polish-populated district of Greenpoint and is expected to support Poland's non-standing membership on the UN Security Council in the years 2018-19.


Duda's aide Krzysztof Szczerski said Friday that the president's New York itinerary will be "very tight".


On Sunday Andrzej Duda will pay tribute to the victims of the September 11, 2001 attack on New York's World Trade Centre at the Ground Zero site where the WTC building stood. Later in the day he will visit Greenpoint, home of the second-largest Polish community in the US after Chicago. In Greenpoint the president will attend a holy mass in a local Polish church and meet Polish community members.


On Sunday afternoon Andrzej Duda will hold talks with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the UN building. That evening he will address a UN summit on the post-2015 development agenda.


On Monday morning the president will speak at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly. Szczerski said that Duda's address will focus on the rule of law and adherence to international law as a peace mainstay.


During his visit Andrzej Duda will speak with the presidents of Chile, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Hungary and Senegal, as well as the king of Jordan and the prime minister of New Zealand.


On Tuesday president Duda will attend the inauguration meeting of the Mediterranean-Baltic-Black Sea Group, also to be attended by the leaders of Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. (PAP)
