Poland, US agree new troop locations

Warsaw and Washington have agreed on six locations for new US troops to be stationed in Poland, the country’s defence minister Mariusz Blaszczak said on August 30.

“We have agreed on six locations, we talked about a seventh location,” Mr Blaszczak said at a joint news conference with US national security advisor John Bolton.

The announcement comes a day after Donald Trump, the US president, cancelled a trip to Poland where he was due to attend an event commemorating the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II.
