    Enhancing bilateral security and defence cooperation, the latest political developments in Ukraine, and relations with Russia were high on the agenda of the 10th jubilee round of the Polish-US Strategic Dialogue. Held in Washington on 18 March, the Poland-US talks also covered the Eastern Partnership programme.

    The Polish delegation was headed by Undersecretary of State Bogusław Winid. The meeting with Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland was devoted  to Polish-American bilateral cooperation and the state of transatlantic relations. “For ten years now, the Strategic Dialogue has provided us with a platform for exchanging views and experiences with the American side. It allows us to discuss joint initiatives and cooperation prospects, be they bilateral or multilateral, short-term or strategic,” said the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy.

     

    MFA and Department of State officials talked about the situation in Afghanistan, Syria and the Central African Republic. They addressed relations with Iran, recent developments in Egypt, and the Middle East peace process. Moreover, the agenda included preparations for the upcoming NATO and EU-US summits, and the ongoing negotiations of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Deputy Minister Winid also raised the issue of extending the US Visa Waiver Program (VWP) to include Poland.

     

    Set up in 2004, the Polish-US Strategic Dialogue is a forum where Poland and the US can discuss mutual relations, security policy and the economy. Following an interval of several years, the initiative was resumed in 2010 by Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
