Trump said: “There’ll be many more [LNG shipments] coming.”

Last month Poland received its first one-off consignment of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from the US and is eyeing a contract for more deliveries as it looks to diversify its supplies, reduce dependence on Russia and become a hub for the region.

Duda said after face-to-face talks with Trump on Thursday that the first delivery of gas had proved a success.

“That opens the way to new contracts," Duda added. “I hope that a long-term contract will be signed soon.”

Trump told a press conference: “America stands ready to help Poland and other European nations diversify their energy supplies so you can never be held hostage to a single supplier.”

He added: “We look forward to making the economic ties between the US and Poland even stronger,” adding that trade relationships should be “reciprocal.”
