President Andrzej Duda’s chief aide Krzysztof Szczerski met on Wednesday with visiting US Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan to exchange opinions on the security situation in the region.
“Poland and the US agree that the situation is unstable due to the activities of Russia,” Krzysztof Szczerski said after the meeting. He added that “Russia’s actions in the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait once again show that official and legal guarantees are being violated by Russia.”
Krzysztof Szczerski noted that he and John Sullivan agreed that “Russia’s consistent infringement of international agreements and treaties is the main source of instability in the region.” “This calls for a reaction which would strengthen our region’s security. One such reaction will be a raised US military presence in Poland. This is its goal, to raise the security of the entire region,” said the presidential aide.
