ARSAW, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Poland will continue seeking stronger NATO eastern flank given the situation in Ukraine, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said on Friday.
“We still live in the world where force is sometimes more important than law,” he said at the celebration of the Day of the Polish Armed Forces. “We vote for stronger NATO and European integration. Therefore, we support the US presence in Europe and future integration of the whole Western world," he added. “We are gradually and consistently modernizing the Polish security system, thus strengthening our defense capabilities and stepping up the power of the alliance as a whole," Komorowski said.
Poland “will further seek stronger NATO eastern flank through presence of foreign soldiers and deployment of foreign equipment”, the president said. “We’ll take care of infrastructure construction needed to effectively accept supporting forces in case of a threat to the country,” he added. This would determine Poland’s course at the NATO summit in Newport in September.
Komorowski also promised to bring up the problem of NATO return to the development path by weakening the trend for reducing financing of national defense systems.
“It is unacceptable that our strong eastern neighbor haa been increasing defense financing for eight years, whereas NATO is reducing funding,” he said. “We want peace and friendly relations with all our neighbors, including Russia," he concluded.
