Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said this on the occasion of the 17th anniversary of Poland's accession to the North Atlantic Alliance, Radio Poland reports.

“Poland is on the verge of great changes - the transition from political participation in NATO to full membership. We hope that the NATO Summit in Warsaw will once and forever change the Polish presence in NATO. It will make Poland and other countries of Eastern and Central Europe as full participating members of NATO,” he said.

He also reminded the Russian aggression in Georgia, conflict in Donbas, Russian intervention in Syria and passengers killed in the Malaysian Boeing crash.

“In this situation Poland will fulfill all its allied obligations. I want it clearly confirm,” summed Macierewicz.

The NATO Summit will be held in Warsaw on July 8 – 9, 2016. Earlier, the Head of the Defense Ministry of Poland called the Kremlin’s aggressive policy the most serious challenge to Europe.
