Krzysztof Szczerski, a top aide at the Polish presidential office, said both Poland and Latvia are part of NATO's eastern flank, which has been bolstered by the alliance's forces following decisions made at a summit in Warsaw last year.
“Not only are both [countries] in this programme but ... Poland is one of the countries which makes up the NATO battalion in Latvia,” Szczerski said.
The presidents will on Monday also discuss the Three Seas initiative which aims to boost cooperation among countries located between the Baltic, Black and Adriatic Seas.
“Poland and Latvia are part of this huge plan to connect Central Europe,” Szczerski said.
The presidents' meeting precedes a Three Seas summit which will be held in Wrocław, in western Poland, in July. (vb/pk)
