While in the US capital, the Polish foreign minister also met with the head of the Atlantic Council think tank, Fred Kempe, for talks on „humanitarian aid to Ukraine” and „violations of humanitarian law by Russian troops.”

Rau on Monday also visited the Polish embassy in Washington for a meeting focusing on ​​transatlantic relations, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

In yet another stop on his itinerary, Rau met with a group of Polish Americans to highlight „the vital role of the Polish diaspora in the social and economic life” of the United States, according to the foreign ministry in Warsaw.
