“The deliveries are not endangered. Everything is on schedule, although we have to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot in the industry. There are no delays and we are monitoring if the deliveries arrive on time. This is an element of our security,” he said.

In the opinion of the deputy minister, Poland will not resign from the American equipment now Joe Biden has become the President.

“Mariusz Błaszczak, the Defence Minister, values the latest military technologies. And Americans have them, this is a natural direction for us,” Mr Ociepa emphasised.

Moreover, it is possible that the American know-how will be used in the construction of the Polish nuclear plant.

“This is a political decision and it is not secret that the purchase of technologies from the US is being considered... But the decision has not been made yet,” the deputy minister said.

He also expressed his conviction that President Biden’s administration would not change its approach towards the presence of the US troops in Poland.

The term of Joe Biden, the 46th President of the US, began on Wednesday.
