Waszczykowski was on Tuesday to meet Michael Flynn, chosen by US President-elect Donald Trump as his national security adviser.
The Polish foreign minister said the main topic of his talks would be possible closer ties between Moscow and Washington under Trump.
"We are not blocking such closer ties, provided that this does not happen at our expense," said Waszczykowski.
He added that previous attempts to “reset” ties with Russia saw countries such as Poland lose out and made the Kremlin bolder.
Waszczykowski stressed it was essential for Moscow to respect international law.
"We are in favour of looking for a modus vivendi in talks and cooperation with Russia, but based on principles based on international law," he said.
