"We're focused on security issues and to us, it is completely natural that an F-16 team will also patrol the skies over Slovakia," Blaszczak said.

 

"The shifts will be carried out from Polish territory, but we have agreed that a Slovakian airfield will also be available just in case," he added.

 

Slovakia is about to acquire its own F-16 fighters, so the two countries "are talking about further cooperation" in the area, Blaszczak went on to say.
