Poland Congratulated

President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Aleksander Kwasniewski on his re-election as president of Poland and reconfirmed an invitation to visit Warsaw, the Kremlin said.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday that Moscow hoped for good cooperation with Poland.

A Kremlin spokesman said Putin and Kwasniewski had expressed "a firm intention" to improve ties.

Kwasniewski’s invitation was a repeat of one that Putin had accepted in July.
