    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The conflict in Syria and the fight against the terrorist group Daesh, also known as the Islamic State, will be the topics of discussion with Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski in Washington, DC, US Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Wednesday.

    "I look forward to having a good conversation with Witold on any number of subjects, ranging from the challenge to Europe as a whole because of what’s happening in Syria and Daesh," Kerry stated in joint remarks with Waszczykowski before the meeting.
