Defence Minister: Poland must rebuild army and economy

Defence Minister: Poland must rebuild army and economy

Poland should concentrate on building a stronger nation, military and economy, Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz said on Sunday.

He was attending commemorations marking the 185th anniversary of the November Uprising, when the Poles rebelled against the Russian Army in 1830-1831.

The Defence Minister stressed that the November Uprising was a war about independence – a battle which has not ended since.

As he said, the present war obliges us to - rebuild the inner strength of the nation, to rebuild the strength of the army and rebuild the strength of the Polish economy, so that Poland will never again depend on external forces; for Poland to be dependent solely on their own abilities, its own fortitude, its patriotism and its own economic and military strength.
