"The fact that the US is discussing this publicly means the purchase can be accelerated… I am pleased to hear this. It is not surprising as we have already begun talks", Blaszczak was quoted as saying by the Polish Defence Ministry.
The minister confirmed that Poland wanted and had enough funds to buy at least 32 fifth-generation warplanes.
The Eastern European nation adopted in March a defence procurement plan running into 2026, which includes replacing its obsolete fleet of Soviet-made Su-22 and MiG-29 jets.
Poland is trying to renew its ageing air force might with the US fifth-generation combat jets, as its combat aircraft only include Soviet-made Mig-29 and Sukhoi Su-22 fighters, as well as US F-16 jets.
