U.S. Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski emphasized the importance of the U.S. president’s visit to Poland.
“President Biden’s visit to Poland has confirmed how strong the partnership is between the United States and Poland. Americans are working hand in hand with Poles by facing even the toughest of challenges,” he wrote on Twitter.
Biden made a two-day state visit to Poland on Friday and Saturday. During his stay he met with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and the Ukrainian Minister of Defense Oleksji Reznikov. Biden also inspected American troops stationed in Poland and personally visited a refugee aid center in Warsaw.
During his Saturday speech, Biden declared that the war in Ukraine was Russia’s strategic defeat and that the West was stronger and more united than ever before.
He underlined that defense of any NATO territory as part of Article 5 was a “sacred responsibility.” He also stressed that Europe had to cease its dependency on Russian fossil fuels.
