The United States could increase the volume of its military equipment deployed in Europe in the framework of its assistance program for the European Allies. This was announced on Wednesday, July 13 by the head of global planning in the US Army, TOS Taipa, RIA Novosti reported.
“If the program continues, then [during the next few years], we could fulfill additional requirements on ensuring Europe's defense capabilities,” he said, noting that it could be the deployment of the engineering battalions.
According to Taipa, Washington would like to see “more means of satellite communication, engineering and all that will accelerate the deployment of the armed forces to the location.”
This year, the United States has quadrupled funding for programs that support NATO allies in Europe, bringing it up to $3.4 billion.
At the summit in Warsaw, the leaders of the EU and NATO signed a declaration on enhanced cooperation to ensure security in Europe.
