White House Week

7.6.14



This week the President travelled to Europe for a four day trip. In Poland he headed to Belweder Palace for a bilateral meeting, and attended a dinner to honour Poland's Solidarity movement.

Kicking off the second day of his trip to Europe, President Obama took part in a bilateral meeting with Ukrainian President-elect Petro Poroshenko in Warsaw, Poland. Later in the morning, the President spoke at Castle Square in Warsaw, Poland, at an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of Polish Freedom Day. The holiday marks the unexpected 1989 victory of Poland's Solidarity movement — and in his speech, the President remarked on how the victory kicked off "revolutionary change" across Europe. After the Freedom Day event, the President traveled to Belgium, where he met with King Philippe and Prime Minister Elio di Rupo at the Royal Palace of Brussels later in the afternoon. He then headed to the Council of the European Union for the start of the 2014 G-7 Summit, which began with a leaders' working dinner on foreign policy issues.

On Friday, the President took part in the D Day commemorations. For the full video click here.
