Referring to Duda, Trump told reporters: “The alliance between our nations has never been stronger with you and I at the helm.”
Trump said he and Duda had “agreed to bolster our robust defence ties. We will enhance cooperation in military relations, intelligence, missile defence, technology and training.”
He added: “I’m proud to report that Poland has recently purchased a state-of-the-art Patriot missile system.”
Duda’s meeting with Trump was the first official visit by a Polish president to the White House in eight years.
Washington is a key military ally for Warsaw which, fearful of Russia, has been pressing for a permanent US troop presence in Poland. Trump said that the US was considering such a move.
