The Three Seas initiative aims to boost cooperation among countries between the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas.
The US president spoke to 12 Central European, Baltic, and Western Balkan leaders at a Three Seas Conference in Warsaw on Thursday.
Trump said the meeting was “incredibly successful.”
He added: “America is eager to expand our partnership with you. We welcome stronger ties of trade and commerce as you grow your economies and we are committed to securing your access to alernate sources of energy so Poland and its neighbours are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy.”
Last month Poland received its first one-off consignment of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from the US and is eyeing a contract for more deliveries as it looks to diversify its supplies, reduce dependence on Russia and become a hub for the region.
Trump said in Warsaw that the Three Seas initiative "will not only empower your people to prosper but it will ensure that your nations remain sovereign, secure and free from foreign coercion."
Polish President Andrzej Duda that the Three Seas region “in practice is one third of the European Union, 12 countries of Central Europe, 112 million citizens … the combined GDP is worth USD 1.5 billion in total.”
