On Tuesday, Waszczykowski will join Poland’s President Andrzej Duda, who will come to the United States to take part in the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.
On Wednesday, Waszczykowski will return to Washington for talks at the State Department and meetings with experts from think tanks.
On Thursday, he will be a guest at an annual conference of the Center for European Policy Analysis, a public policy research institute with offices in Washington and Warsaw and focusing on the study of Central and Eastern Europe. (gs/pk)
