US President Donald Trump will pay a visit to Poland on August 31-September 2, the Polish president's chief aide, Krzysztof Szczerski, told PAP on Tuesday.

On September 1, President Trump will take part in ceremonies marking the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two, in Warsaw, said Szczerski.

Szczerski added that the details of the visit will be announced in an official communique that will be issued by the White House.

The presidential minister, Wojciech Kolarski, announced later on Tuesday that President Trump "is expected to deliver a speech during the observances marking the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII" in Warsaw.

Kolarski told reporters that this will be the ninth meeting of Polish President Andrzej Duda with Donald Trump, and the 13th meeting between President Duda and a serving US president.

"Under way are talks regarding the detailed programme of the visit. We will be keeping you up to date with all the details," he said.

Kolarski recalled that during his Polish visit in 2017, President Trump had delivered a speech. "Of course, we expect such a speech on September 1," he added.

Referring to the list of guests invited to attend the observances, Kolarski said that "confirmations have been coming in."

"In the second half of August, after August 15, we will inform you who has accepted the invitation and what the list of guests for the September 1 observances looks like," he declared.
