(TheRedWire.com) – On Tuesday, following President Biden’s surprise visit to Kyiv, Ukraine, the U.S. President met with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw.
The meeting took place in the Presidential Palace, and a live band proceeded to play the U.S. national anthem during Biden’s arrival, and then the Polish national anthem as the two presidents passed a line of Polish military members.
During the meeting, Biden argued that NATO is now stronger than ever before. He continued to say that things will continue to go well in terms of NATO’s position if the member countries remain focused. On this point, he noted that these are critical relationships for the U.S. and thanked the Polish president for his cooperation.
This meeting between Biden and Duda comes one year after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Duda referred to Biden’s surprise trip to Ukraine stating it was a “political signal” that Ukraine continues to have the support of other nations.
President Biden is also expected to give a speech in Warsaw on Tuesday. The Polish President thanked Biden for choosing Poland for his speech, noting that he was sure the “whole world” would be listening to his speech.
Duda added that the presence of the NATO forces and U.S. armed forces further shows that Poland is safe. Biden had previously spoken with Duda in November when Russian missiles had crossed the Ukrainian-Polish border and had led to the death of two people in Poland. Biden during this latest meeting reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to NATO.
