Facts still under investigation but consultations or even Article 5 of NATO Treaty could be triggered, Duda underscores

“I described the situation to all the leaders: investigations are underway at the site of the explosion.
The President of the United States declared that he would support us in the form of American experts who would help us in the investigation of the site of this event.
We have no conclusive evidence at the moment as to who launched this rocket. Investigations are underway. It was most likely a Russian-made rocket.

The North Atlantic Alliance is on alert. We have strengthened the readiness of the Polish armed forces, including the air defence. Our planes will be supported by allied planes. We act calmly and prudently.

I ask that everyone be calm. Polish soldiers are on site. There is allied support for us and commitments are upheld. We are working, ” the President of Poland estated and continued “…I informed Jens Stoltenberg, the President of the USA, Rshi Sunak and OlafScholz that our ambassador will participate in the North Atlantic Council and that it is highly probable that he will request the activation of Article 4 (i.e. allied consultations).
All the leaders I spoke with today assured me of allied support, upholding all provisions of Art. 5 inclusive. We will consider this matter together.
The protection of Poland has been strengthened. There are no indications that further such events will take place”, Andrej Duda (President of Poland) explained in a series of tweets.
