About This Event
Please join the Center for American Progress as we host Poland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Radosław Sikorski to discuss the new Poland-Russia relationship and European and global security issues after the ratification of New START.
Before assuming his position at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2007, Mr. Sikorski served in senior positions in Poland’s government, including as minister of defense from 2005 to 2007, and as senator for Bydgoszcz. As deputy defense minister in 1992, Sikorski was involved in efforts to bring about Poland’s accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO. In addition to his time in government, Mr. Sikorski has a unique background as a journalist in Afghanistan, a scholar in the Washington think tank community, and as a student in Poland’s historic Solidarity movement.
