The US is enhancing its military presence in Europe based on threats coming from Russia, President Joe Biden has said.
He confirmed the US will raise the number of destroyers in Spain to six from four and said Washington will send two additional F-35 squadrons to Britain and establish a permanent 5th Army headquarters in Poland.
He said an additional rotational brigade will be deployed to Romania and station additional air defence and other capabilities in Germany and Italy.
He pledged to make sure NATO is ready to meet threats from all directions across all domains, land air and sea.
“Putin has shattered peace in Europe,” he said.
“We’re stepping up,” he continued.
“We’re proving now that NATO is more needed now than it ever has been.”
