WARSAW, July 8. /TASS/. The United States plans to deploy about 1,000 its servicemen in Poland, U.S. President Barack Obama said after a meeting with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda on Friday.
He said the United States will be a leader among the NATO member states in terms of presence in Poland. "The United States will deploy a battalion, roughly 1,000 American soldiers here in Poland on a rotational basis to serve shoulder-to-shoulder with Polish soldiers," the White House Press Office quoted him as saying.
He also said a headquarters for a U.S. armored brigade will be set up Poland. "Poland will be seeing an increase in NATO and American personnel and in the most modern military equipment," he said.
Leaders of the 28 NATO member states are expected to announce at the current summit in Warsaw about the establishment of four multinational battalions in Poland and the Baltic states. The battalions will be formed from among servicemen of the United States, Canada, Germany and Great Britain. Their deployment will begin in January 2017.
