President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the United States is considering a request from Poland for a permanent USA military presence in the fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation country.
Poland has repeatedly requested a permanent US military presence on its soil amid fears of Russian aggression, offering up to $2 billion in funding for such a base.
Duda and Trump held a joint press conference from the White House on Tuesday following discussions about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and global defense across Europe.
Trump says that he's considering the idea and that Poland has offered more than $2 billion to the U.S.to pay for such an effort. "And we want to invest further, we want to modernize Polish armed forces", Duda said during a White House news conference with President Trump. "If they're willing to do that (pay), it's something we will certainly talk about".
"I would like to invite the U.S. president to post more American troops to Poland".
"The President offered us much more than $2 billion", Trump said. "And I'm convinced that this cooperation between Poland and the United States will go on smoothly", Duda continued.
Facing Russia's increased military activity in the region, Poland has been pressing for the 3,000 US troops now deployed in Poland on a rotating basis to be upgraded to a larger, permanent presence. A decision from the USA could come early next year.
