Speaking in a video message released by the US Consulate-General in the southern Polish city, Erin Nickerson said: "America has no better friend and partner than the people of Poland."

She added: "Poland has no better friend and partner than the people of the United States. Together, there is nothing that we cannot accomplish."

The message was released after Nickerson took over her new role from Patrick T. Slowinski earlier this month, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

Nickerson previously held diplomatic positions in Bangkok, Rome and Kabul, according to the US embassy in Warsaw.

She holds degrees from the London School of Economics and the University of Colorado at Boulder. She speaks Polish, Spanish, and Italian, the US embassy said on its website.
