    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has praised Lockheed Martin as a major contributor to Poland’s security.

    He expressed his delight at visiting the Lockheed Martin aviation plant in Marietta, Georgia, during a press briefing on Wednesday.

    The Polish Prime Minister is in the US on a three-day official visit.

    “The Lockheed Martin plant not only creates military equipment, it also creates Poland’s security,” Morawiecki said.

    He added that his visit to the plant was dictated by the need to hasten supplies of US-made military equipment bought by Poland.

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced that his country’s acquisition of Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter planes is a milestone for Poland, making them one of only a handful of countries to possess the world’s most advanced fighter jets. Morawiecki highlighted the importance of the purchase, noting that the F-35s are unparalleled in their capabilities.

    Morawiecki also said his talks in the US concerned the purchase of JASSM-XR missiles.

    “My extended talks here have been very fruitful and I think our cooperation will be broadened. Perhaps we will be able to acquire extended-range missiles,” Morawiecki said.
