The Polish authorities commented on the plans to increase the US military presence

The reduction in the number of American soldiers in Germany and the increase in troops in Poland are not related, said the head of the office of the Prime Minister of Poland Michal dvorchik in the Polish radio.

Earlier, U.S. President Donald trump has promised to halve the number of us troops in Germany, up to 25 thousand people, Berlin is behind on their payments to NATO. The Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki hopes that the United States was in the Republic at least some of its troops from Germany.

"You've got to be accurate, to avoid the mistaken impression that the decisions of the United States, which loudly reported on possible reduction of the American contingent in Germany, associated in any way with their presence in Poland," said dvorchik.

"Here things are changing, and of course we are interested that this presence is even more intensified. At the same time, it has no connection with the number of American bases and troops in other countries", - concluded dvorchik.
