Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki said this during a press conference in Washington after a meeting with the US Vice President Kamala Harris, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Madam Vice President said about strengthening the permanent presence," top Polish official said.
According to Morawiecki, Harris announced "an additional presence of several thousand US troops in Poland, as well as the building of a base and a warehouse for the accumulation of equipment and US weapons."
Morawiecki noted that the troops can be quickly deployed, but the most important thing now is military equipment.
"This is evidenced by the Russian aggression faced by our eastern neighbours. And there will be more and more of this equipment in Poland," Morawiecki stated.
During the press conference, the Prime Minister noted that Poland offers the United States a strategic partnership at all possible levels. He called it a "vaccine against Russian imperialism." Morawiecki noted that a significant intensification of contacts between Warsaw and Washington had taken place over the past year. It is not only about military but also economic cooperation and the presence of American investors in Poland.
Morawiecki assured that there will soon be new American investments in Poland, particularly in the military and high-tech sectors.
As Ukrinform reported, the Polish Prime Minister's visit to the United States will last until Thursday, April 13. The main topics of the visit will be Poland's security, assistance to Ukraine, Polish-American economic cooperation, and energy cooperation between the two countries.
