Polish President Lech Kaczynski will pay a visit to the United States in mid-July and preparations for the visit are underway, a high official said on Monday.
Head of Polish Presidential Cabinet Elzbieta Jakubiak last week paid a "preceding visit" to the U.S., during which she held talks with representatives of the White House, Pentagon and the Department of State.
"We talked above all about the anti-missile shield and related question of Poland's security and U.S. assistance to the Polish armed forces restructuring. Said questions will be the main topics of President Lech Kaczynski's talks in the United States," Jakubiak told Polish PAP news agency on Monday.
She added that the president will visit Washington where he will meet President George W. Bush in the White House, Los Angeles, and a military base to see elements of the anti-missile shield that would be deployed in Poland.
Technicalities of the visit will be discussed by employees of the Presidential Chancellery who are bound to go to the U.S.
