NEWPORT Wales (Reuters) - Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said on Friday his country greatly valued the decision by NATO to create a 'spearhead' rapid reaction force that will boost the alliance's presence in eastern Europe.
"We value very highly the fact that there is a progress in increasing the level of NATO readiness to create ... (a spearhead), including assigned forces that comprise around 5,000 troops for absolutely immediate reaction," Komorowski told a news briefing at a NATO summit in south Wales.
