The US official, who asked to remain unnamed, agreed to discuss the upcoming trip of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Europe, including Poland, during a conference call with an international group of journalists.
The representative of the US Department of State said that the trip is a continuation of President Donald Trump's visit to Warsaw in July 2017 and it will be a good opportunity to strengthen the alliance with Poland.
The official revealed that the visit will focus on a whole range of issues related to common strategic interests in the field of security, energy and trade as well the two countries’ cooperation within NATO, including the strengthening of the Alliance's eastern flank.
Asked about the state of democracy in Poland by an ABC correspondent, the senior official said that Poland is a sovereign ally of the United States and it can introduce any reforms that are consistent with the Polish Constitution and welcomed by Polish society.
Tillerson will arrive in Warsaw next week to meet with Poland’s President Andrzej Duda, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Minister of Foreign Affairs Jacek Czaputowicz.
