The US expects Germany and the UK to deploy soldiers and military equipment to the Baltic States, Poland, and Romania, US President Barack Obama reportedly told the US National Security Council.

Obama plans to make the official announcement during a mini-summit in Hannover on April 25th. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, and French President François Hollande are also expected to attend Monday’s meeting.
