Pompeo Signs Pact To Redeploy Troops To Poland From Germany, Boosting "NATO Deterrence"

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Poland Saturday at the conclusion of a four-nation tour of Europe, where crucially he inked a new defense pact with the Eastern European country at a moment Russia has consistently been accusing Washington of provocative and 'irresponsible' military build-up along its western border.

"Today, my Administration signed a historic Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement with the Republic of Poland," President Trump said in a written White House statement, The Hill reports. "This agreement is the culmination of months of negotiations with our Polish allies following the two joint declarations I signed with President Duda last year."

Sure to anger the Kremlin further is the key detail in the deal which adds at least 1,000 more American troops to Poland.
