The United States and Poland have signed a joint declaration affirming closer defense cooperation, which President Donald Trump says makes clear not only their strategic partnership “but deep common values, shared goals and a very strong and abiding friendship.”

Trump on Wednesday, alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, announced 1,000 more U.S. service members will be sent to Poland.

Still unresolved is whether there will be a permanent placement of up to 2,000 additional American uniformed personnel in the country.

“We would be moving them from another location,” said Trump in the Oval Office, suggesting the troops would be shifted from Germany.

Trump ruled out boosting the overall number of American forces in Europe.

Later, during a joint news conference in the White House Rose Garden, Duda noted there are 4,500 American military personnel in his country on a rotational base, and he said the document signed Wednesday would clear the way for additional units, including special forces, as part of an “enduring presence.”

The two leaders avoided announcing a “permanent” shifting of more U.S. troops to Poland – a move likely to significantly increase tension with Russia.
