Poland Is Ready to Host Nuclear Weapons for NATO If Needed

President of Poland Andrzej Duda stated that Poland is ready to host nuclear weapons on Polish territory if NATO decides to do so.

In an interview with the Polish outlet Fakt, published on Monday, April 22, President of Poland Andrzej Duda said: “Russia is increasingly militarizing the Königsberg Region (Kaliningrad). Recently, it has been relocating its nuclear weapons to Belarus.”

“If our allies decide to deploy nuclear arms on our territory as part of nuclear sharing, to reinforce NATO’s eastern flank, we are ready to do so,” Duda added.

Discussions about nuclear cooperation between Poland and the US have been ongoing “for some time”, he said. In June 2023, President of Russia Vladimir Putin confirmed sending tactical nuclear arms to Belarus, which borders Ukraine and Poland.

“I have already talked about this several times. I must admit that when asked about it, I declared our readiness,” Duda said.
