Poland, US defense cooperation closer than ever before: US' Blinken

There is intense cooperation between Washington, NATO allies and Poland that has never been seen before, the top US diplomat said Saturday.

"As NATO allies, defense cooperation between Poland and the United States, I think it’s safe to say, is closer than it’s ever been," Antony Blinken said at a news conference with his Polish counterpart, Zbigniew Rau.

Recalling US President Joe Biden's words: “We will defend every inch of NATO territory,” Blinken pointed out that the US has more than doubled the number of military personnel deployed in Poland since Jan. 30 which is currently more than 10,000.

"And we’ve significantly increased the amount and types of military equipment and capabilities that we’ve positioned in Poland," he said.

He said the Biden administration has requested $2.75 billion in humanitarian assistance from Congress to support Ukrainians who fled the country.
