Poland has hailed the Nato summit in Warsaw on July 8-9 as a “great success”. Member states decided to boost Poland’s security as part of plans to beef up the alliance’s eastern flank.
“We have a fundamental change and a very clear increase in the level of security of our country. We have a new stage in the functioning of the alliance, a revival,” Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the Law and Justice (PiS) party, was quoted as saying by Radio Poland during a press conference.
“This is something we have been waiting for and which increases both our security and our self-confidence,” he added.
More specifically, Nato country leaders in Warsaw decided to deploy four multinational, rotating battalions to Poland and three Baltic countries, which all fear potential Russian aggression after Moscow’s annexation of Crimea two years ago.
