With the aim of convincing Moscow that Poland’s entry into NATO is not a threat, Polish president Aleksander Kwasniewski will arrive in Moscow tomorrow following a visit today to Katyn, the mass grave of World War II Polish officers murdered by Soviet security forces. Kwasniewski declared pointedly on Russian television April 6 that Warsaw had no objections to CIS integration or the Russian-Belarus union because every nation has the right to act according to its own interests. He intends to ask that Moscow display the same respect for Warsaw’s interests. (Russian TV, "Vremya," April 6; Reuter, April 7)
