Efforts to improve relations between Europe and the United States are vital, Polish President Andrzej Duda said on Monday during a session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Warsaw.

“Ties between North America and Europe remain the key to ensuring the security of the Euro-Atlantic area,” Duda said.

“Today, perhaps even more than ever, we should strive to improve the political climate in transatlantic relations,” he added.

The Spring Session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly opened in the Polish capital on Friday and runs until Monday.

The Parliamentary Assembly consists of 266 delegates from the 29 NATO member states, in addition to representatives from associate countries and observers from other nations.

Participants have been discussing issues such as NATO’s deterrence policy, ways of counteracting hybrid threats from Russia, and challenges related to energy security in Central and Eastern Europe.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg were scheduled to take the floor on Monday during a plenary debate.
