Biden and Zelensky likely to meet in Poland, reports Polish media

According to Polish media reports, US President Joe Biden is likely to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during an upcoming visit to Poland. Zelensky's next visit to Poland is expected to be an official state visit.

The Polish newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reported on Wednesday that US President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky are likely to meet soon in Poland.

Since February 24, 2022, the Ukrainian President has visited only four capital cities - Washington, London, Paris, and Brussels. However, Zelensky has also visited Poland twice since then. On December 22, after returning from the US, Zelensky met with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Rzeszów. The two presidents also met on February 9.

Zelensky's next visit to Poland is expected to be an official state visit with all the accompanying protocol, and it is likely to coincide with US President Joe Biden's visit to Warsaw or Rzeszów.

CNN recently reported on Joe Biden's visit to Poland to mark the anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Biden last visited Poland in March and emphasized at the time that it was a moral judgment that Vladimir Putin cannot stay in power in Russia. The White House later clarified that it was a moral condemnation and that the US did not seek to overthrow Putin's regime.

According to sources cited by Dziennik Gazeta Prawna, Ukraine is placing a strong emphasis on diplomacy before the anniversary of the full-scale invasion and promoting its ten-point peace plan.

Meanwhile, Polish diplomats are working to bring as many important leaders from the nine-format Bucharest group, which unites Central European countries, to Poland during the planned visit.

The same Polish publication also reported in early February that Zelensky may visit Poland and meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda and US President Joe Biden.

Zelensky's peace plan aims to ensure the safety of nuclear facilities on Ukrainian territory, exchange prisoners of war, and bring Ukrainian children back to Ukraine who have been taken to Russia. Ukraine also wants an international tribunal to be established for Russian war crimes.

According to sources cited by Dziennik Gazeta Prawna, Zelensky is no longer willing to negotiate the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Immediately after the full-scale invasion, Ukraine was ready to make extensive concessions.

The meeting is also expected to discuss security guarantees for Ukraine. According to the publication, the guarantee countries would include not only the United States but also Canada, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Israel, Germany, and Poland
