Polish PM urges steps by NATO as Belarus border tensions rise

The Polish prime minister has said that NATO must take “concrete steps” to help resolve a migrant crisis on the Belarus border, adding that Poland and the Baltic states of Lithuania and Latvia may ask for consultations under Article 4 of the alliance’s treaty.

Under Article 4, any NATO member can call for a meeting whenever, in the opinion of any of the allies, their territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened.

“It’s not enough just for us to publicly express our concern; we now need concrete steps and the commitment of the entire alliance,” Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Sunday….

He added that European Union leaders were set to discuss imposing further sanctions on Belarus, including completely closing the border.
