United States | Secretary Pompeo’s Visit to Poland: Honoring Shared History and Building for Our Future
United States – For decades, the United States stood with Poles who were fighting for their political, economic, religious, and other human rights, just as we stand together today, as Allies. Thirty years ago, the people of Poland emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, and reclaimed their sovereignty and freedom. After resisting Soviet domination, Poland chose to return to its Western path, joining NATO and the European Union.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Poland, and the 20th anniversary of Poland’s accession to NATO.
