President of Poland Andrzej Duda accused Russia of creating a new "Cold War" due to its actions in Ukraine and Syria. Duda said this in an interview with ''Reuters''.
Polish President responded to statements of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who described the relationship between the East and the West as a "new Cold War" last week and said that NATO is "hostile and closed" in relation to Russia.
''If Mr. Medvedev talks about the Cold War, then looking at the actions of Russia, we understand, who are looking for a new Cold War, " – Duda asserted.
"If someone is pursuing aggressive military operations in Ukraine and Syria, if someone is strengthening its military presence on the territory of its neighbors... then we have a definite answer about who wants to start a new Cold War. Of course, it's not Poland or NATO " – Polish president said.
Duda confirmed Polish pursuit of "intensive" NATO presence on its territory. It will be discussed at the July's summit of the Alliance in Warsaw.
