Poland will lobby President Joe Biden to increase U.S. military presence on its territory, President Andrzej Duda said.

Duda, a political ally of Biden’s predecessor who once spoke about building “Fort Trump” to station U.S. soldiers in NATO-member Poland, said that it’s in the interest of the Biden administration to continue a military build up in eastern Europe. Poland has long seen the U.S. as the guarantor of its security from neighboring Russia.
