[Via Translator] Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to welcome to Warsaw, to welcome to Poland, the president of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump. I am delighted with this visit -- this visit in Warsaw, which is one of the first international visits paid by Mr. President Trump. This visit stresses our bond and the high quality of the alliance between Poland and the United States. It also demonstrates that we are, and that we mutually assess each other as loyal partners, as those who cooperate in many different areas, including the area of security within the NATO alliance. And today, this was one of the topics of our discussion that we had during our meet with Mr. President, followed by a plenary session of our two delegations. We talked about the presence of American soldiers in Poland. We talked about strengthening security of our part of Europe, including the eastern flank of NATO. We discussed generally the security situation in this part of Europe. Apart from that, we mentioned the situation in Ukraine. We talked about the upcoming Zapad '17 military exercise, which will take place in Belarus. We also talked about contracts connected with the modernization of the Polish armed forces. And we discussed the already entered into agreement between Poland and the United States on purchasing Patriot missiles. So we discussed the implementation of the VISUA [?] program. We also discussed the implementation of another program code-named Homar. We discussed about all the things that will be implemented in the next few years as regards strengthening the security of Poland. Ladies and gentlemen, I am delighted. After these conversations, I have a feeling that the United States is thinking very seriously, and Mr. President Donald Trump is thinking very seriously about Poland's security. He's also thinking very seriously about that the United States of America is our loyal ally. The president stressed very strongly the strength of the Polish community in the United States, of our Polonia, the Polish-Americans whom he met even before election. And Mr. President, once again thank you very much for that. Thank you for noticing also the contribution of Polish-Americans and Polish people in the development, in the building of the prosperity of the United States of America. But apart from that, ladies and gentlemen, what has caused economic contracts, not only military ones but also those connected with security, we spoke at length about LNG gas deliveries to Poland. I am really pleased that the first shipment of LNG gas arrived to Poland on the 8th of July from the United States. This has turned out hugely successful. There were no problems whatsoever. There were no barriers to ship that gas to our LNG terminal -- through the LNG terminal in Swinoujscie. This opens up the path to more contracts. I hope that in the near future there will be a long-term contract entered into for LNG gas deliveries from the United States, and that through this, we will diversify sources of supply of this hugely important raw material to Poland. In a few moments, together with Mr. President, we will attend that Three Seas summit, where we are also going to discuss issues pertaining to energy security and pertaining to the development of the trans-Atlantic bond between Europe and the United States. We will also talk about the development of infrastructure in our part of Europe, in Central Europe. But we also going to discuss the development of the European Union, because all the Three Seas Initiative countries are E.U. member states. And whenever we talk about the implementation of the cohesion policy, then we are looking at it from the European Union perspective. We want to implement it through the development of infrastructure along the North-South axis, to increase competitiveness of our countries, and by the same token to increase the competitiveness of the entire European Union. I hope that we'll be able to do that also in cooperation with the United States according to the win-win principle that this is going to be beneficial both for the United States and for our countries. Mr. President, once again, welcome. I'm hugely delighted with your visit in Poland and -- and [Inaudible] of -- of the entire Polish society of the Polish people for coming to Poland. Thank you, Mr. President. The president of the United States, Mr. Donald Trump, the floor is yours. Well, thank you very much, President Duda, for your really gracious hospitality. We've had a wonderful stay. It's been quick. But the people of Poland have been so fantastic. And as you know, Polish-Americans came out in droves. They voted in the last election, and I was very happy with that result. So I just want to thank you, and I want to thank them. It's a true honor to be here in Poland. It's a majestic nation, it really is. It's a spectacular place. Some of the most beautiful sights that we just saw coming over. Really, very inspirational. You're rich in history and you have absolutely an unbreakable spirit. That's something we've learned for -- over the course of many years. The president and I concluded a productive meeting in which we reaffirmed our enduring bonds of friendship that have united our citizens for a long time. And -- but we've never been closer to Poland I think than we are right now. Poland is not only a great friend, but a truly important ally, and a partner with respect to our military. We've had great cooperations with Poland. We've fought shoulder-to-shoulder in many different encounters Particularly grateful for the active role Poland has taken in helping to defeat ISIS, where we've made tremendous strides, tremendous gains, which you'll be hearing about over the next period of time, and other terrorist organizations -- Poland's been right there with us, by training Iraqi special forces and flying reconnaissance missions. And just about any time we requested, they were there. Brave Polish soldiers have fought and worked side by side with Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. And on behalf of all Americans, I want to salute you. I want to thank you. Very, very special people. I also want to thank the Polish people for their kindness to more than 5,000 American troops that are stationed in your country. Our strong alliance with Poland and NATO remains critical to deterring conflict and ensuring that war between great powers never again ravages Europe, and that the world will be a safer and better place. America is committed to maintaining peace and security in Central and Eastern Europe. We're working with Poland in response to Russia's actions and destabilizing behavior. And we're grateful for the example Poland has set for every member of the NATO alliance by being one of the few nations that actually meets its financial obligations. As you know, I've been pretty hard on some of the members of NATO for not, and the money is pouring in. I can tell you. I was criticized, Mr. President, but I can also say that the people of NATO aren't criticizing me. They're very happy. The money has been pouring in in the last year, far greater than it ever would have been. It is past time for all countries and all countries in the NATO alliance to get going and to get up to their obligations. But I can say that Poland has been right there, and you will even exceed that number. And I appreciate that very much and so do a lot of other countries. During our meeting, I congratulated President Duda on Poland's recent election to the United Nations Security Council. We also discussed our mutual commitment to safeguarding the values at the heart of our alliance: freedom, sovereignty, and the rule of law. Poland joins the Security Council at a very critical time. It's a critical time, frankly, for the world because you see what's going on. Not only must we secure our nations from the threat of terrorism, but we must also confront the threat from North Korea. And that's what it is. It's a threat. And we will confront it very strongly. President Duda and I call on all nations to confront this global threat and publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences for their very, very bad behavior. We also discussed the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in Syria and the need to defeat ISIS and other terrorist groups where they control territory and populations. We have fought very hard and very powerfully against ISIS since I've been president. And we've made tremendous gains, far greater than has ever been made with respect to that group. While the cities of Raqqah and Mosul will soon be liberated [Inaudible], criminals and butchers. We recognize that Syria requires a political solution that does not advance Iran's destructive agenda and does not allow terrorist organizations to return. We also reaffirmed that any nation that values human life can never tolerate the use of chemical weapons. And we won't tolerate it either. Finally, we agreed to work to expand commerce between our countries. We strongly support the Three Seas Initiative, and America stands ready to help Poland and other European nations diversify their energy supplies so that you can never be held hostage to a single supplier or, as we sometimes call it, a monopoly. I'm pleased to report that the first shipment of American liquefied natural gas arrived in Poland last month, and there'll be many more coming. Maybe we can get your price up a little bit, but that's OK. [Laughter] He's a tough negotiator. We look forward to making the economic ties between the United States and Poland even stronger through trading relationships -- and that is a balanced and reciprocal one. We want reciprocal trade relationships. We don't have too many of them. I said before that the United States has made some of the worst trade deals ever in history. That's going to change. That's going to change. The friendship between our peoples dates all the way back to the American Revolution. It's a long time. I look forward to speaking more about these enduring bonds of faith and freedom when I address the entire Polish nation in just a little while. I hear we have a big crowd, Mr. President. It's going to be a big -- I think they're showing up for you, not for me, right? We're going to have a big crowd. That's what the word is. So, President Duda, thank you again for welcoming Melania and myself to your beloved homeland. Together we can make the partnership between our two nations stronger than ever before. Special people, special place. And it's an honor to be here. Thank you. Thank you very much. [Via Translator] Thank you, Mr. President. We have time to take four questions [Inaudible]. We'll start with a guest from the United States. Are there any questions from the U.S. side? David? David? Thank you, Mr. President. In light of North Korea's latest ICBM testing, do you think they're beyond redemption, or is there a chance they might actually make a U-turn? And are you willing and ready to launch military action against them? And if -- and if I may -- if I may -- I have to ask about this -- since you started the whole wrestling video thing, what are your thoughts about what has happened since then? I mean, CNN went after you and has threatened to expose the identity of a person they said was responsible for it. I'd like your thoughts on it. Yeah, I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them. As you know, now they have some pretty serious problems. They have been fake news for a long time. They've been covering me in a very, very dishonest way. Do you have that also, by the way, Mr. President? [Laughter] But -- CNN and others. I mean, I know this -- NBC is equally as bad, despite the fact that I made them a fortune with "The Apprentice," but they forgot that. But I will say that CNN has really taken it too seriously, and I think they've hurt themselves very badly -- very, very badly. And what we want to see in the United States is honest -- beautiful, free but honest press. We want to see fair press. I think it's a very important thing. We don't want fake news. And, by the way, not everybody is fake news. But we don't want fake news. Bad thing -- very bad for our country. As far as North Korea's concerned, I don't know. We'll see what happens. I don't like to talk about what I have planned. But I have some pretty severe things that we're thinking about. That doesn't mean we're going to do them. I don't draw red lines. President Obama drew a red line, and I was the one that made it look a little bit better than it was. But that could have been done a lot sooner, and you wouldn't have had the same situation that you have right now in Syria. That was a big mistake. But I think we'll just take a look at what happens over the coming weeks and months with respect to North Korea. It's a shame that they're behaving this way, but they are behaving in a very, very dangerous manner. And something will have to be done about it. Thank you. Thank you, David. And, Mr. President, since we're speaking about press freedoms, your party has significantly clamped down on press freedoms in the last year, and now appears to be weakening the power of the -- the national courts, as well. Do you think that people who live in other modern democracies, including some Americans, are wrong to criticize you for limiting which reporters can cover the parliament? [Via Translator] So, to respond to your question, sir, media order is a very significant thing indeed. And when we look at the situation in the United States, when we look at the situation in Poland, in every case, you can see a lot of apologies. I can give you an example of one Polish magazine, which compared two TV channels of two different broadcasters. And, an example, one of those broadcasters did not report about my visit to Croatia -- the visit of the president of the Republic of Poland to Croatia -- a very important one, which was preparing the -- for the Three Seas summit, because this broadcaster does not really like me as the president of Poland. So I'm permanently criticized by that broadcaster. And I believe this is a reality and this is the right of the media. In Poland, we've got an absolute liberty and freedom of the media. Problems were there during previous governments. Also, when the former president was in office, when one of the magazines, the Wprost magazine, was visited by special services in order to take away recordings which are compromising for all the politicians of the previous ruling party. So that was when the freedom was under threat. But now we have got absolute freedom of the media. We do -- do respect the freedom of the media. We do take care of the interests of the Republic of Poland, and of Polish people. [Via Translator] Thank you, Mr. President. Now, a question from the Polish side. The first question, Polish Television. One question, please. [Via Translator, Inaudible], I represent Polish Television. One question concerning energy, because both of you mentioned energy sector and deliveries of LNG. So my first question goes to President Trump. In what time perspective do you think a permanent contract could be entered into, to ensure LNG gas deliveries and [Inaudible] to Poland? And the question to President Andrzej Duda. Could Poland become a certain hub for the transportation of American gas -- a hub to Three Seas countries? A very fair question. I think we can enter a contract for LNG within the next 15 minutes. Do you have anybody available to negotiate? [Laughter] It will take about 15 minutes You know, we're becoming a great exporter of energy. Very soon, we'll be a very great exporter of energy. And we've taken a lot of unnecessary regulations out of our process. And we are doing things that we haven't been able to do for a long time. So we're a -- we're blessed with great land -- we didn't even know it 15 years ago -- in terms of what was underneath our feet. And certainly, we have found out through technology that we are truly blessed to have this incredible wealth under our feet. And we are going to be an exporter of energy. It's already happening. And any time you're ready, we can do additional contracts. We've already done the one, but we can do many additional contracts. Thank you. [Via Translator] Ladies and gentlemen, I can give you the following answer. It is not the president of the United States and the president of Poland who are going to sign the long-term contract for LNG gas deliveries to Poland. But the contract will be signed by companies, by a Polish company and an American company. And this is how it will be proceeded. What is most important, however -- the most important thing is that there is green light given by the U.S. government, by the U.S. administration, that there is an incentive given by Americans for us to buy gas from the United States. And on our side, on the Polish side, on the side of the Polish authority, there is also that green light. And there is interest in this particular thing. So I count that, after relevant negotiations -- I know that those negotiations are already ongoing. I believe that after the conclusion of those negotiations, there will be a long-term contract for U.S. LNG deliveries to our LNG terminal in Swinoujscie. And answering the second part of your question, can we become a hub through which gas, LNG gas, American gas, will flow to Central Europe, I am convinced that the answer is yes. I am convinced that the answer is yes. And today we're going to talk about this, also And under the framework of the Three Seas initiative, this is also connected with the establishment of an energy corridor, of a gas corridor along with the north-south axis. But also, in the future, this could ensure perhaps alternative supplies vis-a-vis Russian supplies -- alternative supplies for Ukraine. This is of primary importance, and this is what we're discussing with Mr. President Trump. I'm convinced that the future is very rosy on this one, very bright, and the contracts will be entered into. And of course, we, on our part, according to the needs, are going to develop our capacities as regards the reception of the LNG gas from the U.S. and from other directions. Media is free in Poland, so now a question from a private broadcaster, TVN. Mr. Wrona. [Via Translator] Thank you very much. A question to both presidents: You mentioned military cooperation. I'd like to find out from both of you presidents whether, during your exchange, were there any concrete guarantees extended concerning the presence of American troops in Poland as long as there is threat from the Russian side? And how do you see the future, Presidents -- the future of the presence of American troops in Poland? Well, we didn't discuss guarantees, and we weren't really in that position to discuss guarantees. But certainly, we've been here for a long time. We have quite a few troops here, up to 5,000, and we will continue to do that and we will continue to work with Poland. But we did not discuss guarantees, no. [Via Translator] Well, sir, with Mr. President, the topic that we discussed first and foremost was the security situation that we have here. We discussed, in the context of what is happening in our part of Europe, in the context of the Zapad-17 maneuvers, which we have already mentioned. And from that point of view, there's no doubt that the presence of American troops and NATO troops in Poland today is absolutely justified from this perspective. If we asked of the situation that we are seeing in Ukraine all the time, then it is absolutely clear. But we are going to discuss it further with Mr. President. We made an initial agreement to meet next year in the White House. We agreed that I will pay a visit to the United States next year. Further details will be worked out later on. But that year is important both for us Poles and for the Polish- Americans, because next year we're going to celebrate the centennial of Poland's regaining of independence. And I would like myself and Mr. President to stress together the importance of that year, because this shows the contribution of the Polish people to the welfare of the United States over the last 100 years. And last question, American media. Very briefly, please, because the presidents have got to attend a briefing in a few minutes. So perhaps Mr. President Trump is going to select the next journalist asking the question. Thank you, Mr. President. To you first: A two-part question, if I may. Will you once and for all, yes or no, definitively say that Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Well, I think it was Russia. And I think it could have been other people in other countries. Could have been a lot of people interfered. You seem to... I've said it very -- I said it very simply. I think it could very well have been Russia, but I think it could well have been other countries. And I won't be specific, but I think a lot of people interfere. I think it's been happening for a long time. It's been happening for many, many years. Now, the thing I have to mention is that Barack Obama, when he was president, found out about this, in terms of if it were Russia -- found out about it in August. Now, the election was in November. That's a lot of time. He did nothing about it. Why did he do nothing about it? He was told it was Russia by the CIA, as I understand it. It was well-reported. And he did nothing about it. They say he choked. Well, I don't think he choked. I think what happens is he thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and he said, "Let's not do anything about it." Had he thought the other way, he would have done something about it. So he was told in early August by, presumably, the CIA that Russia was trying to get involved or meddling pretty strongly with the election. He did nothing about it. The reason is he thought Hillary was going to win. And if he thought I was going to win, he would have done plenty about it. So that's the real question is why did he do nothing from August all the way to November 8th? Why did he do nothing? His people said he choked. I don't think he choked. The follow-up's for you on that, Mr. President. You again say you think it was Russia. Your intelligence agencies have been far more definitive: They say it was Russia. Why won't you agree with them and say it was? Well, I'll tell you. Let me just start off by saying I heard it was 17 agencies. I said, "Boy, that's a lot. Do we even have that many intelligence agencies, right? Let's check it." And we did some very heavy research. It turned out to be three or four; it wasn't 17. And many of your compatriots had to change their reporting and they had to apologize and they had to correct. Now, with that being said, mistakes have been made. I agree: I think it was Russia, but I think it was probably other people and/or countries. And I see nothing wrong with that statement. Nobody really knows. Nobody really knows for sure. I remember when I was sitting back, listening about Iraq, weapons of mass destruction; how everybody was 100 percent sure that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Guess what. That led to one big mess. They were wrong and it led to a mess. So, it was Russia, and I think it was probably others also. And that's been going on for a long period of time. But my big question is why did Obama do nothing about it from August all the way to November 8th? He did nothing about it. And it wasn't because he choked. And before I get to President Duda, you talked about being angry, President Obama -- Mr. President, you talked about having anger... Dear lady, it was two questions. Dear lady -- dear lady, two questions. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. We must go. Very briefly follow up, Mr. President... Thank you very much. ... why haven't you shown that anger toward Moscow, sir? Dear lady, it was two questions. Thank you very much. Can I ask of President Duda, please? [No Translation] President Duda... [Via Translator] Thank you to the members of the delegation. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Mr. President... Thank you, everybody, very much.
