Nominated by the conservative Law and Justice party, Duda was sworn in as Poland’s president on August 6 last year. Duda chose Estonia for his first foreign visit.

Exchange of official visits between Vilnius and Warsaw was suspended in past years due to the different stances countries hold on the situation of ethnic minorities.
