Poland calls for larger U.S. military presence in eastern Europe

"During Biden's visit, Siemoniak said, "there was a clear expectation from our side, and also from all NATO allies (in) eastern Europe, that we expect a larger military presence of the U.S. and that this eastern flank of NATO must be strengthened."

Given the crisis in Ukraine, he said, it was "natural" to conclude further talks with the U.S. would also involve the possibility of locating a U.S. base in the region.

Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula have made some NATO members in former communist central and eastern Europe anxious about their own security, prompting Washington to reassure them that it will protect them if needed, in line with NATO security guarantees."
