NATO meeting will be held on July 8-9

U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have announced they will attend the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw which will be held in July, reports Radio Poland.

"The President and I look forward to joining you in July for the NATO Summit in Warsaw, which will be a fitting showcase for the continued strength and resolve of our Alliance in a period of considerable stress," Kerry wrote in an open letter to Poles on Friday. "The bonds between our two peoples extend back to the period of American independence, were invigorated through solidarity at Cold War's end, and have been strengthened further by our joint commitment to shared ideals of democracy and the rule of law."

"Today, our nations collaborate closely on a range of economic and security issues, and our soldiers serve side by side in regions around the world. Together, we are determined to resist all threats to the safety and well-being of our citizens," the letter read.

This will be the first time Poland will organise the NATO summit, which will held on 8-9 July.
