Poland "ready" to host NATO nuclear weapons

President Andrzej Duda made the comments in an interview published Monday in the Fakt tabloid, according to ABC News.

Russia is “recently relocating its nuclear weapons to Belarus,” Duda said, in a reference to Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko’s announcement in December.

“If there were a decision by our allies to deploy nuclear weapons within the nuclear sharing also on our territory in order to strengthen the security of NATO’s eastern flank, we are ready,” Duda said.

He said Poland is aware of its obligations within the 32-member alliance that includes the United States.

The announcement comes while Russia had threatened to target those weapons in northern Europe. The facilities in Northern Europe hosting US nuclear weapons will be included in the list of legitimate military targets under a scenario of a direct military clash between Russia and NATO, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing earlier this year on March 6.
