The Swiss president, Adolf Ogi, has been holding talks with his Polish counterpart, Aleksander Kwasniewski, on security issues and European integration.
The two met at Kwasniewski's summer residence during the first visit to Poland by a Swiss president. The two-day visit has now ended.
The Swiss defence ministry said the two presidents discussed Poland's experiences as the latest Nato member state as well as Switzerland's involvement in Nato's Partnership for Peace programme.
Another area of common concern was the situation in the Balkans. In their talks, Ogi and Kwasniewski agreed that Europe bore a responsibility for bringing security and stability to the region.
Although it was Ogi's first visit to Poland, the Polish president is a regular visitor to Switzerland, where he has attended the World Economic Forum in Davos.
