Trump to Visit Poland in July, Before G-20 Summit in Germany

U.S. President Donald Trump pumps his fist at his aides and staff members looking on as he departs to spend the weekend at his New Jersey golf estate from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, June 9, 2017.

U.S. President Donald Trump will visit NATO ally Poland before he heads to Germany for the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in July, the White House announced.

"The visit will reaffirm America's steadfast commitment to one of our closest European allies and emphasize the administration's priority of strengthening NATO's collective defense," the White House said in a statement late Friday.

Trump will deliver a major speech during the visit, and attend the Three Seas Initiative summit as a symbol of Washington's "strong ties to Central Europe," it said.

Leaders from several central, eastern and southern European countries are to meet in the city of Wroclaw in western Poland for the Three Seas summit on July 6-7.

The G-20 summit takes place in Hamburg on July 7-8.
