Poland wants NATO to create intelligence centre in its territory


Poland wants NATO to place an intelligence centre for the 4 battalions of the alliance that are going to be deployed in Eastern Europe.

“The centre will be the place of operative information gathering. These data will allow other NATO members to be aware of what is happening on the eastern flank,” Polish Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz said in Brussels, stressing that Berlin among others supports Warsaw in this matter.

The final decision will be made at the July’s NATO summit in Warsaw.

The head of the Defence Ministry of Poland confirmed that the decision to deploy NATO’s 4 battalions in Poland and the Baltic countries has already been made. Details of strengthening the eastern flank will be decided at the Warsaw Summit in July.

According to unofficial information, the battalion in Poland will be lead by the US forces, Canadian troops will lead the battalion in Latvia, the British – in Estonia, and the German – in Lithuania.

On Monday, June 13, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed the alliance’s plans to strengthen the eastern flank by deploying 4 battalions in Poland and the Baltic countries.
