The US plans to increase the contingent in Poland by a thousand people

At the same time, Washington refused the idea to open a military base “Fort Trump” on Polish territory.

US military contingent in Poland will be increased from 4.5 thousand people to 5.5 thousand militaries. This was reported by the Financial Times, citing its sources.

The talks between Washington and Warsaw on the expansion of US military presence are close to completion. In addition, the parties plan to re-equip the contingent, to strengthen the composition of the Special Forces. Also in Poland will create a joint military training center.

In the course of negotiations, Washington has decided to reject the proposal of President Andrzej Duda to create in his country US military base called “Fort Trump” in honor of the President of the United States Donald Trump.

However, the Pentagon expects a long-term presence in the Eastern European country. Part of the US armed forces will be placed on several military facilities.
