Security, like freedom, are not granted forever, President Bronislaw Komorowski said opening a meeting of Central-East-European state heads with Poland-visiting US President Barack Obama at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw.

 

"Security, like freedom, are not granted forever. They must be constantly nurtured, constantly strengthened. We are doing this in NATO, showing to ourselves and the world that freedom demands effort and frequently strength", Komorowski declared.

 

Commenting the Ukraine crisis, Komorowski voiced appreciation for NATO's raised presence in Central-East Europe. Calling NATO's response to the situation in Ukraine "a common experience of importance for solidarity and security", the Polish President voiced hope the NATO members will continue to work towards strengthening the Alliance in face of "the crisis immediately beyond NATO's eastern frontier (...), in relations between Ukraine and Russia".

 

In his address Obama stated that the US "stood shoulder to shoulder" with its NATO allies and assured Central-East-European leaders that "no one will take away what you have built in the past 25 years".

 

Referring to the NATO Treaty's Article 5 on collective defence, Obama stressed that "we must be absolutely united around Article 5 and collective defence".

 

Obama said that in face of Russia's activity in Ukraine NATO was raising its presence in the region. Addressing energy fears connected with the Ukraine crisis, the US president announced that the US planned to export more gas on the international market.

 
Invitations to the meeting were extended to the presidents of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia - all of them NATO members. (PAP)
