The prime minister of the United Arab Emirates has met with the Polish president during a visit to Warsaw in which the two countries are seeking greater cooperation in the areas of tourism, agriculture, higher education and scientific research.

Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum , who is also the emir of Dubai, met on Monday with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski.
