Boris Johnson’s planned visit to Poland was canceled after Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s office told Downing Street he no longer has time to meet the outgoing UK premier.

British and Polish officials discussed several potential dates and provisionally agreed a meeting in Warsaw on Aug. 8 before the plan fell through, according to people familiar with the discussions.
