Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Saturday he hoped that some of the US troops that are set to be removed from Germany will be reassigned to Poland.
President Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to cut the number of US troops in Germany by 9,500, a senior U.S. official said on Friday. 34,500 troops are currently stationed there.
The move was first put forward in August of last year, primarily as a result of Germany's continued refusal to meet its 2% of GDP contribution to NATO.
“I deeply hope that as a result of the many talks that we had ... part of the troops based today in Germany which are being removed by the United States ... will indeed come to Poland,” Morawiecki told private radio RMF24. “The decision is now on the US side.”
