My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence met with his Polish counter-part in Warsaw for the Quadriga (meeting of Foreign and Defence Secretaries) on 21 June 2018, where the Polish Deputy Minister for National Defence was also present. They discussed a range of topics covering the bilateral defence relationship between the two countries. The Secretary of State set out the UK's unconditional commitment to European security. The UK has made clear to Allies it wants defence cooperation after the UK leaves the EU to include working together on operations and missions and the development of capabilities in the future.
