The meeting had previously been planned by Poland’s former Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz.

Macierewicz lost his job in a sweeping Cabinet reshuffle last week, just over halfway through the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) government’s term in office.

Macierewicz, a powerful figure in the ruling PiS party, was replaced as defence minister by Błaszczak, up to then Poland’s interior minister.

On Monday, Błaszczak was due to hold a meeting in Brussels with General Curtis Scaparrotti, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, and with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
