Rasmussen pointed out that it is odd that there is no such permanent base near Russia because Russia is a major threat.
According to him, the US base will improve regional security in Poland.
Rasmussen also said Moscow's sanctions and pressure should be kept because "the only language that Putin understands is the force."
Under the NATO program, there are already American soldiers in Poland and the Americans are currently part of the US missile defense shield in the northern part of Poland.
Warsaw is ready to spend around $ 2 billion to provide adequate infrastructure to US soldiers in Poland, including housing, schools, and healthcare facilities, said Andrej Duda, spokesman for Blažejs Spihalskis, spokesman for the Czech Republic in September.
