    Poland's President Andrzej Duda said he hopes that the Canadian military will increase its presence in his country as part of a NATO force.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Andrzej Duda, who started a four-day visit to Canada on Monday, said he was counting on stronger military cooperation between Canada and Poland.

    On Tuesday, Duda is scheduled to meet with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for talks that will focus on stepping up NATO presence on the eastern border and the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw.
