VP Biden says Obama to visit Poland, Brussels, France during June trip to Europe


WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will visit Poland, Belgium and France during a trip to Europe in June.

That’s according to Vice President Joe Biden. He’s announcing Obama’s itinerary during a speech to the Atlantic Council in Washington.

Biden says Obama will visit Poland for the 25th anniversary of the first democratic elections there.

Obama will also travel to Brussels for consultations with the Group of 7 leaders. That meeting was originally scheduled to take place in Sochi, Russia, under the Group of 8 banner, but was scrapped as G-7 leaders sought to isolate Russia for annexing Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

Biden says Obama will also travel to France for the June 6 ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy.
