In a lecture delivered at the Weimar Transatlantic Forum, Czaputowicz said that transatlantic relations and the North Atlantic Alliance were the main components of Poland's security and sovereignty.

He added that Poland’s priority was to ensure that NATO continues to adapt to new threats, a shift that began at the summits in Wales and Warsaw.

Czaputowicz said that an upcoming assembly in London would see NATO leaders take an important step towards achieving this goal.

The gathering of NATO heads of state and government is scheduled to take place on December 3-4.

The priorities of Polish foreign policy from the global and European perspectives were the main themes of Czaputowicz’s speech at the conference organised by the Genshagen Foundation. The organisation promotes cooperation within the Weimar Triangle of Poland, Germany and France.

Monday's forum was one of the key events of Czaputowicz’s two-day visit to the German capital.

Other items on the agenda include meetings with his counterpart Heiko Maas; German parliamentary Speaker Wolfgang Schäuble; and the Coordinator of German-Polish Intersocietal and Cross-Border Cooperation, Dietmar Woidke.
