"A new US base, including at least [some] elements of classic permanent [military] presence, could change the geopolitical landscape of Europe," Szatkowski said, as quoted by the Polish Press Agency.

The official added that a permanent US military base would have a strategic political influence that will continue to long-term containment, and also a "purely" military influence, since it would enhance existing troops and also open doors for receiving new personnel.
