Warsaw has had discussions with Washington about US nuclear weapons being based on Polish territory amid what it sees as a growing threat from Russia, President Andrzej Duda said.
“The problem, first of all, is that we don’t possess nuclear weapons,” Duda said in an interview with Gazeta Polska on Wednesday. “There’s no indication that in the near future we as Poland would have it at our disposal,” he added.
The solution could be Warsaw’s participation in Washington’s “nuclear sharing” program, the president suggested.“We have spoken to the American leaders about whether the US is considering such a possibility. The issue remains open,” he said.
However, a US official said the White House was “not aware of this issue being raised,” according to The Guardian.
