Australian Defence Minister Marise Payne has met with her Polish counterpart, Minister for National Defence Mariusz Błaszczak, to discuss the growing defence relationship between the two nations and sign a bilateral joint statement on defence co-operation.

Australia and Poland share a friendship based on strong people-to-people links, shared democratic values and belief in the importance of multilateral engagement through the United Nations and other international forums.


Minister Payne said, "Our defence relationship is underpinned by our experience working together under the NATO umbrella in Afghanistan and in the global coalition to defeat ISIS in Iraq."

Minister Payne and Minister Błaszczak reaffirmed their mutual commitment to ensuring sustained efforts to project stability, fight terrorism and uphold the rules-based global order.

Areas of potential future co-operation under this arrangement may include the exchange on shared global security concerns, military training and education, and cyber security. Minister Payne and Minister Błaszczak also agreed to explore a defence co-operation memorandum of understanding to further defence engagement between the two nations.
