Poland not plans to sell weapons to Ukraine

Poland currently has no plans to sell weapons to Ukraine.

Polish defense minister Tomasz Siemoniak has said this after a meeting of the Security Council of Poland on Wednesday in Warsaw, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Poland belongs to the group of countries, which considers that such an option [arms supplies to Ukraine] is possible in future. At the same time, we do not plan to supply weapons. We believe that despite tense situation and casualties of the last days, the world should focus on how to implement the Minsk agreements to start the dialogue and the peace process," Siemoniak said.

He stressed that Warsaw was concentrating on other forms of cooperation with Ukraine in the military sphere, which are long-term. In particular, Poland has become one of the leaders of the NATO Trust Fund, and in September last year Warsaw signed an agreement on the establishment of the Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian international military brigade.
