Poland to Host NATO Exercises?

From Polskie Radio: Poland is lobbying to host the NATO Response Force (NRF) maneuvers on its territory.

According to the daily Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland having the opportunity to host such military exercises would increase the country’s security.

NATO maneuvers could be a response to the joint exercises of the Russian and Belorussian armies planned in the Kaliningrad region, neighbouring Poland, and a demonstration that the Alliance is ready to defend Poland’s territory in case of an eventual attack – although the ministry has not officially confirmed the claim.

“The maneuvers could take place in the south or in the west as long as they do take place in Poland” says Defense Minister Bogdan Klich in the paper. (photo: Polskie Radio)
