On Monday in Warsaw, Polish President Andrzej Duda ratified the Poland-United States Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) during a ceremony held at the Presidential Palace.

The agreement provides for a further increase in the number of U.S. troops stationed in Poland and the establishment of a new legal framework for their presence in the country.

The conservative government has had close ties with the U.S. during the Trump administration and this move will cement them.

Nevertheless, President Duda stated that despite the closeness of the two current administrations, the bilateral relationship would not change under a Biden administration.
