French President Emmanuel Macron, who recently visited Poland, will deliver an important address on Friday in which he will make a reference to Poland, Polish presidential aide Krzysztof Szczerski told Polish Radio One on Friday morning.

Szczerski said Poland was familiar with the text of the speech and added that Macron was going to present a further stage of the strategic dialogue between Paris and Warsaw.

The French president visited Poland on Monday and Tuesday and held talks with the country's top officials, including President Andrzej Duda and PM Mateusz Morawiecki.

Asked what should be expected of the speech, Szczerski said that "it's going to be a discussion concerning the future of Europe's nuclear security policy with the inclusion of such countries as Poland."

On Friday, at the Military School in Paris, Macron is expected to present France's defence doctrine and signal the need for international discussion on a joint defence strategy.
