PARIS, Nov 16 French President Emmanuel Macron announced that held a telephone conversation with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and told him of his readiness to support the investigation of reports of missiles falling in Poland.
“I spoke with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki to express our solidarity to him. Poland can count on the support of France and our readiness support ongoing investigations,” Macron wrote on his Twitter account.
It was previously reported that the French President plans to raise the issue of the situation in Poland on the margins of the G20 in Bali on Wednesday.
Polish media November 15 evening reported that two rockets allegedly fell on the territory of Poland-in Lublin Voivodeship on the border with Ukraine, killing two people. Officially, the authorities did not confirm the information about the fall of missiles, nor did they name whose missiles they could be.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, no strikes were made on targets near the Ukrainian-Polish state border, and the published photos of some debris have nothing to do with to Russian weapons. All statements by the Polish media about the alleged fall of “Russian” missiles are a deliberate provocation in order to escalate the situation.
The Pentagon said that in the situation with the alleged fall of missiles in Poland, they intend to operate not with speculation, but with facts, to clarify which there are sufficient opportunities. At the same time, until the facts are received, the Pentagon will not talk about the applicability of Article 5 of the NATO Charter, said military spokesman Patrick Ryder. This article states: the contracting parties agree that an armed attack on one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered an attack on them as a whole.
