As the head of the National Defense Ministry noted, currently the details of the Fort Trump project are discussed in a working group consisting of Polish and American experts. - In March 2019, the Pentagon will present its assessment to Congress. We are striving for this assessment to be good for both sides. I am working to ensure that this project of the presence of US troops in Poland becomes a fact. This is an investment in our security - the minister stressed.
