Poland wants to deploy nuclear weapons on its territory

Jun 30, 2023

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that his country would like to join the nuclear exchange program among NATO countries in view of Russia's intention to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.

He said this after the summit in Brussels, Polsat News reports.

Morawiecki confirmed that Warsaw is interested in participating in this program.


"The final decision will depend on our American and NATO partners. We declare our will to act quickly in this matter," the Polish prime minister said.

Morawiecki emphasized that we do not want to sit idly by while Putin is escalating all sorts of threats.

Nuclear Sharing is NATO's nuclear deterrence program. It allows for the provision of nuclear warheads to NATO member states that do not have nuclear weapons of their own. Since November 2009, the program has deployed U.S. nuclear weapons to Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey.
