Mitt Romney arrives in Gdansk

30.07.2012 17:56
Prime Minister Donald Tusk greeted US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Gdansk, Monday afternoon, at the start of a two-day visit to Poland.

The Republican politician will be counting on the Poland leg of his trip going more smoothly than what was perceived in the British media to be a disastrous visit to London, where his criticisms of preparations for the 2012 Olympics drew a dismissive response from UK prime minister David Cameron and London mayor, Boris Johnson, both centre-right politicians that Romney would usually count as political allies.
While in Israel on Sunday, during the second leg of the tour, Palestinians accused him of undermining peace prospects after Romney called Jerusalem "the capital of Israel", ignoring their own claims to the city.
Even in Poland, as Romney was chatting to locals outside Gdansk Town Hall on Monday afternoon, a small crowd of protesters chanted “Obama, Obama”.,Mitt-Romney-arrives-in-Gdansk
