Polish FM to visit Moscow for Putin's visit to Poland
Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski will go to Moscow on May 5 for talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, local media reported on Wednesday.
Preparations for Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's visit to Poland, scheduled for early September, will be the main topic of talks between the Polish and Russian foreign ministers, Polish news agency PAP reported, quoting diplomatic sources.
Putin reportedly is to attend ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two in Poland's Baltic coastal city of Gdansk on Sept. 1., Xinhua reported.
Sikorski is also expected to discuss with his Russian counterpart the question of the installation in Poland of elements of the U.S. anti-missile shield, a project which Russia consequently opposes.
The Polish government is trying to convince Russian politicians that the installation will not threaten Russian security.
