US President Barack Obama will visit Spain next month after meeting with leaders at a NATO summit in Poland, the White House said.
Obama will attend the summit from July 7-9 before heading to Spain July 9-11.
The meeting of the military alliance "will afford an opportunity to underscore Alliance solidarity, to advance efforts to bolster security to NATO's east and south, and to project stability through new partnerships beyond the North Atlantic area," spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.
Obama is also scheduled to meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda to discuss security issues and meet with European Union leaders on counterterrorism, the economy and the refugee crisis.
In Spain, Obama plans to highlight security cooperation with the NATO ally and hold meetings with King Felipe VI and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
