Duda: Warsaw hopes for increased American military presence in Poland

Polish President Andrzej Duda said that the country expects an increase of the United States military presence in Poland and he is waiting for a response from Washington.

"We expect that the presence [of the US] will increase, but whether it will be an increase in the number of military personnel or in the number of the military bases, it’s up to the Americans to decide,” the Polish President said at a press conference in Lublin on Friday.

Duda reiterated that Poland is ready to accept more American troops on its territory. There are presently about 4,500 military personnel stationed in Poland.

It was earlier reported that the US Department of Defense is considering increasing number of troop in Poland.
