MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russia-NATO Founding Act of 1997 explicitly pledges that the alliance will not permanently station substantial combat forces or nuclear weapons in Eastern and Central Europe. The goal of the document was to build a long-term peace in the Euro-Atlantic area based on principles of democracy and cooperative security.
"Everyone knows that Russia has violated the regulations of this document. This is obvious. The one who speaks about the viability of that document contradicts facts," Duda told the Polish Rzeczpospolita newspaper, answering a question whether Warsaw would seek amending the document at the NATO summit underway in Poland's capital.
On July 8-9, NATO is holding a summit in Warsaw, Poland to discuss boosting the alliance’s military presence in Eastern Europe among other topics.
