Poland to be regional leader in NATO: defense minister

WARSAW, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Poland will play the role of a regional defence cooperation leader in NATO, the country's Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak told journalists on Monday.

According to Siemoniak, the point is to have a stable NATO and U.S. infrastructure in Poland, such as an anti-missile system in Redzikowo or joint Polish-U.S. Aviation Detachment bases in Lask.

According to Siemoniak, the next NATO summit, to be held in Newport, south Wales in early September, was planned to answer what the alliance would look like once the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan ended.

The minister added that the answer found was that NATO would have to be capable of countering a threat in Europe.

This must be a strong defence alliance prepared for fending off an attack on its members, the minister said.
