The Polish President's Office said, without elaborating, that Duda's talk with Stoltenberg focused on "the current security situation."

Stoltenberg said on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, that he had a "good call" with Duda and that he thanked the Polish president "for Poland's many contributions to NATO," and for helping to make the alliance's "historic Vilnius Summit a success."

Stoltenberg added: "Poland also leads by example on support to Ukraine, and we will continue to support them for as long as it takes."

Latvian President Edgars Rinkēvičs tweeted that he and Duda discussed regional security "in regard to the latest developments" as well as "Latvian-Polish bilateral relations."

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, launching the largest military campaign in Europe since World War II.

Friday is day 548 of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
