Romney to visit Poland WWII site, meet Lech Walesa
Jerusalem: US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney heads to Poland on Monday, where he will visit the site of the first shots fired in World War II and pay tribute to the country`s anti-communist movement.
Romney plans to meet with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk in Gdansk before heading to the Westerplatte memorial, where a German battleship shelled a Polish military outpost in 1939.
Romney also plans to see former Polish President Lech Walesa and visit the famed shipyard where the electrician began an anti-government movement in the 1970s.
Romney is expected to receive a warm reception in the conservative, Catholic country. Last year, when President Barack Obama travelled to Poland, the local press reported that Walesa had refused to meet with Obama.
