WARSAW – The agreement reached between Poland and the United States on the expansion of US military presence in the country provides for the creation of six points where US troops will be located. This was stated on Monday by Polish defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak on Polskie Radio.
“As part of the agreement, we agreed that there will be six such points in Poland, where the units will be located,” he said.
According to the Minister, the exact localization “will be determined by the agreement of both parties.” “It is important to strengthen the Eastern flank of NATO, and hence the Eastern flank of our country, to deter a possible aggressor,” – said Blaszczak.
In addition, the Polish Minister recalled the creation of a divisional command, which will be subject to American troops on the Eastern flank of NATO.
According to Blaszcak, the agreements reached in Washington – “this is an undoubted success” since now a possible invader will understand that “an attack on Poland means not a local, but a global conflict.”
On Wednesday, the President of the United States Donald Trump jointly with the President of Poland Andrzej Duda on the press conference in the Rose garden of the White House announced that Poland at his own expense will construct an object for 1 thousand American troops. He also pointed out earlier that it was a “world-class facility.” The President stressed that the US will not send additional troops to Europe and can increase its military contingent in Poland by transferring forces from Germany or from other places. According to him, we are talking about 2 thousand soldiers.
