President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday in Orzysz, north Poland, voiced hope for increased NATO presence in Poland in the coming years.
Duda, in Orzysz to inspect a NATO Battalion Combat Group stationed in the city, said he not only hoped for more NATO forces in Poland, but also that more NATO training exercises are held on Polish territory.
"I hope that with the years the NATO presence in Poland will increase, but also that allied exercises will take place in our country more frequently," Duda said.
