It will be the two officials' second meeting since Pompeo was named to replace Rex Tillerson in March.

Czaputowicz and Pompeo met at a NATO foreign ministers' get-together in Brussels in late April. Their meeting on Monday comes ahead of a NATO summit in July.

Czaputowicz will on Tuesday chair a United Nations Security Council debate in New York about protecting civilians in armed conflicts.

Poland on January 1 became a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for a two-year term that ends on December 31, 2019.

The country on May 1 assumed the month-long rotating presidency of the 15-member Council.

Czaputowicz in late April said that Poland’s priorities for its UN Security Council presidency included "strengthening the role of international law, promoting the effective resolution of conflicts, ensuring the protection of civilians, and emphasising the importance of humanitarian law.”

Czaputowicz's US visit follows Polish President Andrzej Duda's trip to America during which the Polish head of state chaired a UN Security Council debate on Thursday and met Polish Americans.
