Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that this advanced system of command, logistics and complicated procedures has been perfectly prepared for potential action. At the same time, the head of government stressed that such deep-reaching cooperation within the framework of the Multinational Corps Northeast will give additional impetus and strengthen the foundation of NATO's eastern flank defense.

The Prime Minister also pointed out that we should be mindful of potential threats, further adding that we must always be prepared and armed to the best of our ability.

During his speech the head of government also drew attention to the fact that Poland strives to be the best member of NATO it can, spending 2% of its GDP on defence policy.

The Prime Minister also expressed his thanks to all soldiers and their commanders for this defensive potential, which is becoming ever more visible today.

This is the only way that we can ensure peace in this part of the world and the world as a whole concluded the Prime Minister.


The Multinational Corps Northeast is a high level international tactical task-force of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. It was founded on September 18, 1999 through joint efforts of Poland, Denmark and Germany. The Corps consists of soldiers from 25 countries, 23 of which are NATO member countries. The main tasks of the Corps include command of the Emergency Preparedness Task Force, operational control of six NATO Force Integration Units (NFIU) in Estonia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia and Hungary, monitoring the security situation in the Baltic Sea Region and acting as a regional centre for military cooperation and coordination.
