According to him, a corresponding agreement with the United States will be signed in the near future.
As you know, US President Donald Trump announced plans to increase the contingent in this country at a meeting with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda in 2019. According to Blaszczak, the details of this proposal are now being worked out. The agreements will be signed "in the relatively short term".
At the same time, the head of the Polish defense department did not specify whether it was about the military transferred from Germany within the framework of the proposed rotation.
"It is not our task to find out where these soldiers come from. This decision is made by the United States," he stressed.
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper also announced that the Pentagon will withdraw 11,900 troops from Germany. Of these, 5,600 people will be redeployed to other NATO member states, another 6,400 will return to the United States, while many of them will be rotated in other European states.
According to media reports, Italy and Belgium may become possible relocation countries. Part of the contingent is likely to go to Poland and the Baltic states if Warsaw sticks to the agreements outlined by both sides. Thus, the total number of American servicemen in Germany will be reduced from 36 000 to 24 100 people.
