President's aide to discuss security, Poland's priorities in UNSC

The situation in Ukraine, security policy, the Three Seas Initiative and Polish priorities in the UN Security Council will be the topics of talks held by the Polish president's top aide, Krzysztof Szczerski in Warsaw, Washington and New York this week.


On Wednesday, Krzysztof Szczerski will meet in Warsaw with Kurt Volker, the US special envoy for Ukraine. Regional security, with particular emphasis on the conflict in eastern Ukraine will be the subject of the talks.


Later on Wednesday, the head of the President's Office will go to the United States. On Thursday in Washington, Minister Szczerski will meet representatives of the State Department and advisers to the US President in the National Security Council.


"In addition to security issues in the perspective of this year's NATO summit, the topic of talks will also concern the widely understood Polish-American bilateral co-operation and the current state of our relations," the presidential minister noted.


While in Washington, the presidential minister will also take part in a seminar devoted to the Three Seas Initiative titled "Advancing Liberty and Economic Freedom through the Three Seas Initiative" organised by the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation. During the seminar, Krzysztof Szczerski will hold a series of talks with representatives of American opinion-making and advisory circles.


The Three Seas initiative is an idea promoted by President Andrzej Duda for co-operation between countries situated in the Baltic, Black Sea and Adriatic Sea region in the area of infrastructure. In July 2017, the summit of the Three Seas countries took place in Warsaw, with the guest attendance of US President Donald Trump.


On Friday in New York, the Polish President's chief aide will meet representatives of the UN Security Council member countries to discuss the guidelines of the high-level debate that Poland plans to organise in May during its presidency of the UNSC.


On January 1 of this year Poland began its two-year non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council. (PAP)
