Mitt Romney may expand his overseas trip later this month to include stops in Germany and Poland.

The Romney campaign has already confirmed that the presumptive Republican nominee will attend the Summer Olympics in London before traveling to Israel, where he's set to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other key officials in the region.

But Politico reports the Romney campaign is considering adding more stops as part of a larger foreign policy offensive aimed at President Barack Obama.

Under the plan, which is still under consideration by the campaign, Romney would deliver at least two major foreign policy addresses during the trip, possibly in London and Poland. A plan to visit Afghanistan, which has long been rumored, has been scrapped, according to Politico.

A Romney campaign aide declined to comment on the report.
