    Poland’s democratisation and development assistance programmes in the Eastern Partnership countries were the subject of a discussion between Undersecretary of State Henryka Mościcka-Dendys and US congressional advisers on a visit to Poland.

    The discussion, which was held in Warsaw on 2 July, also covered Polish-US relations, security policy and economic issues. “We’re happy to note our very good cooperation with United States Senate and Congress,” said Deputy Minister Mościcka-Dendys. “We’re hoping to make progress possibly soon on the last ‘difficult’ element in our relations that is the admission of Poland into the US visa waiver programme,” she added. The visiting US delegation at the MFA also met with Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski.

     

    Congressional advisors’ study visit to Poland comes as part of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act entered into between the US Department of State and the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The delegation comprises representatives from the offices of Republican and Democratic senators and congressmen: Chris Murphy, Tim Murphy, Marc Rubio, Rob Portman, Michael Turner, Mark Kirk, Dan Lipinski, Barbara Mikulski and Bob Corker. The visit’s agenda includes trips to Gdansk, Malbork, Warsaw, Krakow and Oswiecim. The US delegation will have meetings with representatives of Polish central and local authorities, and NGO experts. They will also visit museums and remembrance sites, and the military base in Lask.
