Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk is traveling to France and Germany to bolster alliances as concerns mount over Russia's aggression in Europe and the potential return of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk's diplomatic efforts include meetings with leaders of France and Germany, amidst growing anxiety over former U.S. President Donald Trump's comments inviting Russia to invade NATO members not meeting defense spending targets and the ongoing war in Ukraine. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg highlighted that Trump's remarks increase risks for American troops and allies, while Poland, having met and exceeded NATO's defense spending expectations, seeks to strengthen its position and influence within the EU.
