Poland’s president meets Lockheed Martin CEO about further investment in military weapons

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s National Security Bureau says the country’s president has met the CEO of U.S. manufacturer Lockheed Martin about strengthening security in the region and continued U.S. investment in Poland’s military weapons and equipment. The bureau says the talks Wednesday included “securing the participation of Poland’s defense sector” in deliveries and maintenance of U.S. weapons such as jet fighters, Javelin missiles and elements of the High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System. In 2022, Poland spent more than 2.5% of its GDP on defense, well above the NATO target of 2%. Some of that spending has gone to replace Soviet and Russian-made equipment offered to Ukraine, which is battling Russia’s full-scale invasion.
