The Pentagon’s new budget includes military commitments to Poland after it was approved by the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, helping to serve as a reaffirmation of the U.S.’s commitment to the solidarity principle enshrined in Article 5 of the NATO treaty.
President Donald Trump has signaled that he would sign the $738 billion Pentagon budget as soon as the U.S. Congress approves it. That budget for 2020 contains provisions for military cooperation between the U.S. and Poland in line with the commitments Poland secured in its bilateral talks between Presidents Duda and Trump.
The draft resolution, backed by most Republicans and Democrats, declares that Poland is a “valuable ally in NATO since 1999 and an important ally of the USA.”
