Talks were chaired by the Secretary of State in the Polish Ministry of National Defence Czeslaw Mroczek.

 "Poland attaches a great importance to the work of the V4. Especially in the context of the ongoing process of professionalization of the armed forces we want to refere to a specific armaments cooperation, expressed not only in the declarations, but above all the implementation of joint initiatives "- said the Minister Mroczek. He also stressed how important it is to precisely define national needs in the context of works on specific projects.
