“We are increasingly more compatible with other North Atlantic Alliance forces,” President Andrzej Duda said during his visit to Romania, where he watched military exercises in Smardan.
The president, who has been in Romania since Sunday, observed the “Justice Sword 21” military exercises with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on Tuesday.
“Today me and the President [of Romania] met here, at the training ground, to see the exercises of our soldiers in practice,” the Polish president said, stressing that both Romanian and Polish soldiers stationed in Romania took part in the exercises.
As Andrzej Duda emphasised, during the exercises, one can not only meet the soldiers but also see the weapons that were used for demonstration and training purposes, which soldiers use on a daily basis.
“This is also a manifestation of the modernisation efforts in both our armies, as we have talked about in recent days,” he pointed out.
“There is increasingly more modern equipment, we are increasingly more compatible with other Alliance forces, in particular with the troops of the US Army,” Andrzej Duda stressed.
“I am very happy that we train this interoperability, that we meet as part of allied operations, that our soldiers are improving their skills, and that we redeploy our troops by practicing various logistic solutions and various strategic solutions,” the President emphasised.
Tuesday is the second day of President Duda’s official visit to Romania. On Monday, he talked, inter alia, with the President of Romania and took part in the Bucharest Nine Summit.
