Andrzej Duda was speaking after talks with his visiting Icelandic counterpart Guðni Jóhannesson in Warsaw on Tuesday.

Duda told reporters that Poland had “huge deposits of geothermal energy,” while Iceland was a European leader in harnessing such energy.

"There are major prospects for cooperation in this area," Duda declared.

He also said that geothermal energy was an important source of potential supplies for Poland as the country sought to modify its energy mix in favour of renewables in line with the European Union’s climate protection policy.

Duda and Jóhannesson also talked about Poles living in Iceland and touched on relations with Russia when they met in Warsaw on Tuesday, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.

Jóhannesson and his wife Eliza Jean Reid arrived on a three-day trip to Poland earlier that day.

The visit started with an official welcoming ceremony at the presidential palace in Warsaw. The two presidents and accompanying officials then sat down for talks.

The two countries’ education ministers signed a joint declaration on Polish language teaching in Iceland. At least 20,000 Poles live in Iceland, comprising the largest group of foreigners in that country, according to the Polish president’s website.

On Wednesday, the Icelandic first couple are scheduled to visit the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) in the Polish capital and will also stop at Warsaw University.

The Icelandic president and first lady will then travel to Gdańsk, northern Poland, to tour landmarks including the city's historic shipyard, a museum of World War II and the European Solidarity Centre.
