US President Donald Trump announced during his meeting with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, on the strengthening of the US military presence in Poland, which will bear the financial burden of this measure, which denied that it is linked to any escalation with Russia.
Trump said Poland would also build facilities at its own expense to receive new US soldiers from other bases in Europe.
He added that the Poles "will build the facilities for us and I am sure it will be very beautiful." And added "They will bear the full cost."
Trump gave few details about the goal of the plan, which is part of a "joint declaration on strengthening military cooperation" he signed with Duda during the meeting.
Under the deal, the current number of 450 US troops on duty in Poland will be increased to 1,000, and Trump said the troops would be "probably" moved from other bases in Europe.
