Poland says it may be willing to exchange envoys with US

Poland's communist authorities indicated on Wednesday they may be prepared to exchange ambassadors with the United States to stop ''the further decline of relations'' between the two countries.

Poland has refused to accept the appointment of a new US ambassador since former Ambassador Francis J. Meehan left in February of 1983. Poland has not named a new ambassador to Washington since the last envoy, Romuald Spasowski, defected to the US after the Polish government imposed martial law in 1981.
