Poland’s foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski has urged NATO to deploy troops to guard its eastern flank against Russian aggression.

Speaking at a security conference in Bratislava in Slovakia, Waszczykowski said he would appeal to NATO directly when the organisation visits Warsaw in July for a summit.

He said Russia has the potential to destroy countries and therefore was a greater threat than ISIS.

He said: ‘We have existential threats and non-existential threats. Of course the Russian activity is kind of an existential threat because this activity may destroy countries,’ he said when asked which security challenges he saw as existential.

‘And we have non-existential threats like terrorists, like massive wave of migrants.’

‘It is a very important threat but it is not an existential threat for Europe,’ he said when asked specifically about ISIS.
