Patriot anti-missile defense complexes that Poland plans to buy in the US will also protect Lithuanian airspace, as stated by the head of the Defense Committee of the Polish Sejm , Michael Jach, reports Delfi news agency.
During the official visit to Lithuania, Jach stated that Lithuania faces the same threats as Poland.
"The Patriot system should be the way; it could be integrated with neighboring countries," he added.
There are currently no long-range missile defense systems in Poland and the Baltic countries. However, Warsaw intends to purchase Patriot missile defense complexes from the United States. An agreement was concluded between the two countries on the Patriot system delivery.
Patriot missile systems were temporarily deployed by the US in Lithuania in the past.
