Poland advocates for bigger Nato budget

Mariusz Blaszczak, Poland’s defence minister, presented his country’s stance at a meeting with his Nato peers in Brussels on Thursday.

“…Poland advocated for increasing the Nato budget in undertakings that we will finance together,” Blaszczak went on to say.


Poland has recently revealed a plan to increase the size of its armed forces from just over 110,000 professional soldiers and 32,000 territorial defence members to 300,000 troops, including 250,000 professional soldiers.

Jens Stoltenberg, Nato secretary general, said after the meeting that the ministers had discussed the strengthening of Nato battle groups on the bloc’s eastern flank, including increased air, naval and cyber defence.
