US President Donald Trump has argued that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw.
Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend Western freedoms, he warned against the threats of “terrorism and extremism”, BBC News reports.
Poland’s conservative government shares Mr Trump’s hostile view of immigration and strong sense of sovereignty.
Mr Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
He was addressing a large, cheering crowd from the monument to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, on the city’s Krasinski Square.
“As the Polish experience reminds us, the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail,” Mr Trump said.
“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”
