US President Donald Trump confirmed his presence in Poland to hail the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII, according to the privately-owned Polish news website wp.pl, that states the US head of state will arrive in Warsaw on August 31.
“We have information from diplomatic sources close to the Polish foreign ministry. The US President’s visit will be confirmed by Washington soon,” states wp.pl.
“President Trump will arrive in Warsaw on August 31. On September 1, he will take part in the celebrations planned to commemorate the outbreak of WWII and give a speech. Unofficially, we know that the US President’s meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda has also been planned,” adds the website.
Besides the American president, a huge number of world leaders are expected to attend the event. “It will be an opportunity to demonstrate unity within the NATO alliance. Therefore, the secretary-general of NATO Jens Stoltenberg is expected alongside NATO country leaders,” wp.pl says.
Should President Trump visit Poland at the end of August, it would be his second during his term in office. He was in Poland in July 2017 at a meeting in the capital’s Royal Castle.
In turn, President Duda has visited Washington twice within the last year, including June 2019.
