M.Poniatowski, plut. P.Cieliński/MONDEFENCE 24 ABOUT:Polish Government Adopts New Security Policy, Polish Government Adopts New Strategy of National Security At the meeting of the Council of Ministers the government has adopted new Strategy for NationalSecurity for the Republic of Poland, which has been created by the Minister of Defence. The documentcovers the issues which are related to the widely understood security of the Republic of Poland. It alsotakes the possible Russian Threat into account.Strategy is to “ completely cover the issues of national security and indicate the optimal ways of using any state resources in order to realize goals within the spheres of: defence, society, protection and economy”  . The preceding strategy of national security adopted in 2007 is to be valid until the momentwhen the new document created by the Council of Ministers enters force on 21 st  October this year – asthe Prime Minister's Office states.The new strategy takes the Russian threat into account, particularly due to the Russian attempts toreconstruct Russia’s superpower position in the region. In accordance with the information released bythe Prime Minister Office “ there is a risk of local and regional conflicts in direct vicinity of Poland”, andthreats for the Republic of Poland may be of both military and non-military character. Any large scaleconflict is considered to be “less plausible”, however threat of armed activity “below the threshold of   classic war” has been taken into account.National Security Strategy sets three priorities of the Polish security policy. Polish Authorities will befocused on creating the national capabilities within the scope of own security and NATO reinforcement,as well as within the defence and security policy of the EU and strategic relationship with the partner states, including USA. The strategy will also support widely understood security activities undertakenby the international community, including the United Nations.When it comes to the national capabilities “ Poland is to focus its strategic efforts mainly on providing security to its own citizens and territory”, considering support of the allied defence capabilities andacting against threats located beyond the NATO territory. The Polish authorities will be particularlyconcerned about the areas of security policy, within which “ allied (joint) operations may becomedifficult  ”.Within the scope of the second priority, Poland aims at reinforcing the NATO defence capabilities andNATO eastern flank. It has been emphasised that cooperation with the US is of paramount significance(including support for the US presence in Europe). Additionally it has been underlined that there is aneed of maintaining a close cooperation with the neighboring countries and a need to increase thepolitical integrity. The activities undertaken by the Polish government will also aim at “ deepening theintegration processes of the EU in a way which would provide sufficient security potential, including defence capabilities”  .In order to realise the third priority, reinforcement of the UN and reconstruction of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe will be needed. Additionally law enforcement within the armscontrol area needs to be executed more effectively.In accordance with the strategy the Polish authorities will execute defence activity (in the militarysphere), which aims at “ maintaining and demonstrating multi-faceted readiness of the country to react to the military threats to the Polish independence and territorial integrity”.  Another primary goal is toprotect Poland, including provision of conditions which would make it possible to maintain commonsecurity and public order, along with internal stability of the country and functioning of the criticalinfrastructure. Last, but not least, the strategy will have a social dimension which is to be focused on“ creating safe conditions in which the citizens would live”. This strategy assumes that certain preparations needs to be undertaken, inter alia within the scope of tightening the way the Polish security system functions in the military and non-military, as well as in theexternal area. As the Prime Minister Office states “ The basic tasks are related to establishing the legal and organizational background for the integrated national security system as well as implementation of rules and procedures of strategic national security control, which will be unified in any state of national security.”  DEFENCE 24
