EU, NATO stand with Poland amid Belarus border crisis: president

Polish President Andrzej Duda on Friday thanked NATO and the European Union for their support amid an ongoing migrant crisis and voiced hope that Belarus would “soon cease its hybrid attack” on the Polish border.


At a joint news conference afterwards, the Polish president said that in recent days he had spoken to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, French President Emmanuel Macron and the Lithuanian head of state, Gitanas Nausėda.

He said he was “pleased and grateful” that the NATO chief had taken “such a firm stance” on the border crisis.

“NATO stands in solidarity with Poland and all our allies in the region,” Stoltenberg also said at the time.
