NATO forces deployment in Poland and Baltic states may guarantee security for Europe

The decisions to be taken at the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw will make Russia "forget about threatening Poland, European countries and other countries", Antoni Macierewicz, Poland's National Defence Minister, says.

He stated this in an interview with Associated Press, on July 4, Deutsche Welle reports.

According to him, "only demonstration of a real readiness to protect our borders may effectively stop Russia's aggressive intentions". As soon as the North Atlantic Alliance deploys armed forces in Poland, the Polish will become a full-fledged NATO member being "completely protected by the united forces".

The Minister thinks that the Polish have been aspiring to this for the past 70 years. They "will be able to forget about a fear" despite Russia's actions which are "threatening regional and global peace", as for example, in Ukraine.
