The Three Seas Initiative, the European Union’s Eastern Partnership, the Bucharest Nine, the Lublin Triangle and similar programs and formats are integral parts of the contemporary application of the Intermarium Project first enunciated by Poland’s Józef Piłsudski a century ago to effect a cordon sanitaire/militaire along Russia’s entire western border, blocking it from the rest of Europe.
US diplomat Mark Brzezinski, President Joe Biden’s nominee for ambassador to Poland, has pledged to “deepen and broaden the partnership” between the two countries.
Appearing before the US Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, Brzezinski said he would “commit to continue and strengthen” the United States’ security cooperation “with our stalwart ally Poland, where the enduring rotational presence of some 4,500 US troops defends NATO’s eastern flank.”
He added: “I will deepen and broaden the partnership between Poland and the United States to spearhead economic growth in the region, including through the Three Seas Initiative,” a Polish-led regional drive by European countries between the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas.
Brzezinski also pledged that, if confirmed, he would “work with Poland to support the government and people of a peaceful and whole Ukraine, as well as the aspirations of the Belarusian people for a democratic Belarus.”
He added he would in particular “continue to underscore to Polish authorities the importance of an impartial judiciary, independent media, and respect for the human rights of all, including LGBTQI+ persons and members of other minorities.”
Brzezinski previously served in the administration of Barack Obama and was US ambassador to Sweden from 2011 to 2015.
