US President Donald Trump will meet with Nato allies in Poland today, where he will give a major speech about his vision for US relations with Europe.

Ahead of the G20 summit in Germany, Trump will gather with leaders from central Europe, Baltic states and the Balkans where he is expected to get a warm welcome in an event led by Poland and Croatia to boost regional trade and infrastructure.

The White House said Trump will use the meeting and the policy speech at Warsaw square to showcase his commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which he once called "obsolete".

Poland's conservative government shares a similar populist, eurosceptic leaning with Trump. It has praised Trump's visit as a recognition of its role as a leading voice in central Europe.
