Rao and Blinken were on the phone Thursday. A day later, the US State Department Post a note for this event. In it we read that the diplomatic chiefs of Poland and the United States spoke about the partnership in NATO and the threats posed by the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to European energy security.

“The Secretary of State stressed the importance of defending our democratic values, including freedom of the media and respect for civil rights, given that Poland will chair the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in 2022.” We read more in the American statement.
