Poland expects an increase in the number of US troops in the country
Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Chaputovic said that Poland supports the decision to increase the military contingent from the United States.
“We are cooperating with the United States in the framework of our agreement to increase the presence of the US military in Poland,” TASS quoted the minister as saying.
According to Chaputovic, the increase in the number of US military in Poland is a very important issue to ensure the security of the country in particular and the region as a whole.
“We talked about the arrival of another thousand soldiers in our country, that is, an increase in the contingent from 4.5 thousand to 5.5 thousand people,” he said.
Earlier, Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak said that under the agreement between Poland and the United States on expanding the US military presence in the republic, six points will be created where American troops will be deployed.
As noted by Polish leader Andrzej Duda, the country will provide the United States with a base and infrastructure for the presence of more than 1 thousand US troops.
