Poland Not Ready for 'Reset'

WASHINGTON — The United States has pushed the “reset” button to improve its relations with Russia, but Poland’s president said his country was not yet able to push that button all the way down.

“We are not able to fully reset and delete 1,000 years of uneasy history with Russians,” Bronislaw Komorowski said Wednesday at a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama.

Komorowski said it was critical that the U.S. Senate ratify the New START missile-reduction treaty between the United States and Russia.

“We also are absolutely sure of this old Russian proverb, ‘You have to have the confidence but you also have to verify,’” Komorowski added, referring to a thaw in Polish-Russian ties.
