US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Poland on Tuesday. He is expected to talk to Polish Foreign Affairs Minister Radosław Sikorski about the scandal regarding the alleged NSA spying on European citizens.
Mr Kerry has admitted that the spying has gone to far. “I assure you, innocent people are not being abused in this process, but there’s an effort to try to gather information,” he told reporters. “And, yes, in some cases, it has reached too far inappropriately.”
When announcing the visit, Mr Sikorski said that Mr Kerry’s visit “will be an opportunity for serious talks on a range of European security issues and international developments.”
Other topics that will be discussed include Poland-US trade cooperation, as well as joint security projects with a view to next year’s NATO summit, the Polish Foreign Affairs Ministry said.
Mr Kerry will also visit the Polish Air Force base in Łask where the US personnel are stationed and will lay flowers on the grave of Poland’s former Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki, who passed away last week.
The visit to Poland will be Mr Kerry’s only stop in Europe during his trip, which also includes visits to several countries in the Middle East.
