On Friday, Poland Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszcak, speaking at a joint news conference with U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton, said the two countries had agreed on at least six locations for new U.S. troops to be stationed, according to Poland's TVN24 News.

"I am here to express my feelings for the country, my patriotism, and to remind myself of these bad times", said 68-year-old Warsaw resident Krzysztof Wojciechowski.

Mr Kawczynski told Express.co.uk: "We see the German President coming to Poland asking for forgiveness but it's no good because they continue to refuse to offer any compensation for the genocide they committed".

Under Timmermans, the European Commission has launched legal action against Poland, accusing it of breaching the bloc's rule of law standards.

Germany has refused to pay reparations, arguing that the issue was finally settled by the 1990 worldwide treaty on German reunification, which was signed by Britain and the other major wartime Allied powers.

Germany, one of Poland's biggest trade partners and a fellow member of the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, says all financial claims linked to World War Two have been settled.

Trump and the PiS government share views on issues such as migration, energy and abortion, but the Warsaw government faces mounting isolation in Europe over accusations that it subverts democratic norms.

He didn't mention the U.S.in his answer, but said, "Indeed, Poland's counterintelligence has detected activity that could be of espionage nature" and that prosecutors are investigating.
