(Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in Warsaw on Saturday where they spoke about U.S.-Poland defense ties, including the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA), and their support for the people of Belarus.

Pompeo and Morawiecki also discussed the COVID-19 pandemic, securing 5G networks and a new bilateral agreement to cooperate in the development of Poland’s civil nuclear power program, a State Department spokeswoman said.

Pompeo and Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak later signed the EDCA.
