Europe and Eurasia: Poland: United States and Poland Sign Patriot Deal

http://internationalpeoplesearch.com


Press Statement

Heather Nauert

Department Spokesperson

Washington, DC

March 28, 2018


The United States welcomes today’s signing in Warsaw of an agreement concluding Phase I of Poland’s purchase of the Patriot missile defense system, worth $4.6 billion. This includes a brand new, state-of-the-art command and control system for Poland’s air and missile defense. The signing of this agreement will strengthen the security and capabilities of the United States, Poland, and NATO along the Alliance’s Eastern Flank. It reflects Poland’s investment in sharing the burden of collective defense through its ongoing defense modernization program, to which Poland devotes more than 20% of its defense budget, and is the culmination of commitments made in conjunction with the meeting between Presidents Trump and Duda in Warsaw in July 2017. It also creates jobs in both the United States and Poland.

We look forward to working with Poland to finalize Phase II of this acquisition.
