Polish Defence Minister Bogdan Klich has said the US will deploy its F-16 jet fighters and Hercules transport planes in Poland on a rotating basis from 2013.

He said Poland had decided to accept the US proposal to host rotations of F-16 and Hercules aircraft and their crews on its territory.

The US planes will take part in joint drills with the Polish Air Force before returning to the US.

The deployment of the US military planes in Poland is similar to the stationing of American Patriot missiles on Polish territory in the beginning of 2010.

The minister also said that Poland and the three Baltic states would host an exercise of the Nato Response Force (NRF) in 2013, according to novinite.com.
