Poland comments on the situation, in which Turkey will replace the Polish military in terms of leadership of the mission, called "At the forefront of NATO". The mission itself is to coordinate and conduct operations on the borders of the North Atlantic military bloc.
Turkish officers with 1 January 2021 years take command of the mission, including the so-called Joint High-Readiness Task Force, to myself.
Normative acts prescribe the command primarily for high-alert forces "in the event of a crisis situation".
66-I am a motorized rifle brigade of the Turkish armed forces will replace the 21st rifle brigade of the Polish army "at the front lines of NATO".
Polish experts say, that NATO "should be wary of transferring responsibility for command of joint operations to Turkey". In particular, points to Turkish-Russian military-technical contacts, and threats to NATO.
Explicitly following the American political agenda, in Poland declare, what, probably, the command should not be transferred to Turkey, and another NATO country, to "minimize risks to the collective interests of the alliance".
In such a situation, it should be stated, that Poland wants to play a more important role in the military bloc, than that, which she has today. At the same time, Warsaw makes it clear, that there is open distrust in NATO.
