Poland, due to its special historical experiences, is dedicating much attention to matters of security and is ready to significantly contribute to PESCO projects, Andrzej Sados, Poland's permanent representative to the European Union wrote in an article for EURACTIV. "As the world struggles with a global pandemic, the US navigates its post-election reality and China's role on a world stage is changing, European defence cooperation is ever more important," the Polish envoy wrote. Referring to Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) projects, Sados said that the decision to establish conditions for the participation of third states "could be a milestone in strengthening European defence potential." "It may well be the last missing element of PESCO's institutional framework. The agreement on the participation of third states in PESCO opens the door not only to the EU's main security partner, the US, but also to other NATO allies, in particular the United Kingdom," Sados wrote.
