US Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher tweeted on Sunday that the words of former US security advisor John Bolton, who claimed that US President Donald Trump could not recall agreeing to a Fort Trump in Poland, were misleading as the name 'Fort Trump' was never under consideration.
Polish presidential aide Krzysztof Szczerski on Friday called a report by Reuter's new agency on the alleged failure of the Fort Trump concept "total disinformation." Fort Trump is Poland's plan to set up a permanent US military base in Poland.
Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak met with US Defence Secretary James Mattis in Washington on Tuesday to discuss Poland's proposal of a permanent US base in Poland. "The atmosphere is good," Błaszczak said after the meeting.
Military cooperation is among the topics covered in a joint letter by US Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher and Polish Ambassador to the United States Piotr Wilczek published on the centenary of Poland regaining independence.
