WARSAW, Poland – U.S. House of representatives Paul Ryan is the lead of a bipartisan congressional delegation to Warsaw to meet with Polish president and prime minister following the recent deployment of thousands of AMERICAN troops for the NATO-member state.
Both Ryan’s office and the Polish Prime minister Beata Szydlo said Friday the talks would focus on economic and security issues.
Szydlo said: “We want our relations with the USA, so close, so intense, if that is possible.”
The United States deployed a brigade of 3,500 troops to Poland in January and in recent weeks sent hundreds more troops as part of a multinational U.S.-led NATO battalion. The goal of the implementations is to reassure a region nervous about Russia.
The congressional delegation of the trip to Europe is also scheduled to make stops in great Britain, Norway and Estonia.
