Ex-diplomats Urge Trump to Pressure Poland on Rule of Law

Ex-diplomats Urge Trump to Pressure Poland on Rule of Law

Tuesday, 27 August 2019 03:38 AM

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Dozens of former Polish ambassadors are telling President Donald Trump that Poland's democracy is at risk and urging him to pressure the country's populist government during a coming visit to stop flouting the constitution.

The Conference of Ambassadors write in an open letter : "Mr. President, you are coming to a country where the rule of law is no longer respected."

Trump is to attend ceremonies Saturday in Warsaw marking the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II, which began with Nazi Germany's invasion of Poland on Sept. 1, 1939.

It will be Trump's second visit to Poland, where a nationalist right-wing government who shares his anti-migrant views welcomed him enthusiastically in 2017. Then, Trump gave a speech praising Poland as a defender of Western civilization without mentioning democracy.
