WARSAW - President Barack Obama pledged close US cooperation with Poland on Saturday on missile defense, the upgrading of its air defenses and in developing shale gas and nuclear power to boost its energy security.

On his first visit to Warsaw, Obama also defended his "reset" of relations with Russia, a policy that has sometimes unnerved Poles wary of Moscow's resurgence and its efforts to roll back Western influence in former Soviet republics.

"Poland is one of our strongest and closest allies in the world and is a leader in Europe," Obama told a joint news conference with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

"What we want to do is to create an environment in this region in which peace and security are a given. That's not just good for this region. It is good for the United States of America. And we will always be there for Poland."
