Jens Stoltenberg to check preparations for upcoming July Alliance summit

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg arrives in Poland on a two-day visit starting Monday, mainly to discuss preparations for the Alliance's summit in July in Warsaw. He is set to be meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Prime Minister Beata Szydło, Defence and Foreign Ministers Antoni Macierewicz and Witold Waszczykowski. On Tuesday, May 31st, Jens Stoltenberg is also to present a speech at the University of Warsaw.

Crucial decisions are expected to be adopted at the NATO summit in Warsaw scheduled for 8-9 July, the Alliance's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a recent interview with Polish Radio.

"The Warsaw summit is going to be a landmark summit where NATO is going to make important decisions on how we adapt to a more challenging security environment," Stoltenberg said.

NATO summit is to bring together nearly 2,500 delegates from about 60 countries, including heads of state anf government, E.U. and United Nations leaders.

The Polish authorities are to strengthen the country's air defences during the military alliance's summit, while flights in certain zones will be restricted or prohibited. Polish officials have asked NATO headquarters to supply AWACS surveillance planes to monitor the country's air space during the meeting.
