(Madrid) -- Poland is supporting a U.S. plan for a permanent troop presence in the European country.

President Biden announced at the NATO summit Wednesday that the U.S. was changing its position in Europe following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and would establish a permanent Army base in Poland.

A top Polish official called the announcement a "success" that came from long and consistent negotiations on the matter.

Biden said the U.S. would also rotate about three-thousand fighters in Romania, and enhance deployments in the Baltic countries of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania.
