Polish president tasks NATO members to spend more on defence



Polish President Andrzej Duda has called on NATO members to increase defence spending to three per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) from the current guideline of two per cent.

Duda made the remark at a joint news conference with his Slovenian counterpart, Natasa Pirc Musar, during his two-day visit to Slovenia.

The two leaders pledged their support to Ukraine and said they supported the two-state solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict.

Pirc Musar said that Slovenia, currently a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, is working with partners to achieve peace in Gaza and Ukraine.

Slovenia had pledged to increase its defence spending to two per cent of GDP by 2030, up from 1.35 per cent at present.
