Poland to Join NATO Cyber Defense Center


From the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs:  Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that during their meeting in Tallinn today, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski noted that Poland would like to become a full member of the NATO Co-operative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. “The more NATO members we have participating in the work of the centre, the more qualified the centre will be to offer high-level cyber-related advice to NATO member states,” said Paet. …

Paet said that Poland is a very important partner for Estonia in both the European Union and NATO. “Our relations are close and supportive. Evidence of this is the visa representation agreement between Poland and Estonia that came into effect in April 2010, which functions very well. On the basis of the representation agreement, Estonia has accepted 104 visa applications for Poland in Pskov,” he added. “Poland’s participation in the air policing of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania’s skies is also vitally important. Poland has protected the Baltic airspace for three rotation periods, and it has promised to participate again,” acknowledged Foreign Minister Paet.  (photo: Estonian Foreign Ministry)
