Obama To Visit Poland On Last Leg Of Tour
May 27, 2011
U.S. President Barack Obama is due in Poland later on May 27 on the last stop of his four-nation tour of Europe.
Obama will meet with leaders of Central and Eastern Europe who will also be in the Polish capital for a summit.
Obama's talks with Polish leaders are expected to focus on Poland's possible energy riches and defense issues.
A recent U.S. Energy Information Administration report said Poland has enough shale gas reserves to meet its energy needs for 300 years.
A possible deal to rotate some U.S. F-16 fighter jets to a Polish base is also expected to be discussed.
