Poland said Sunday it is negotiating with the United States to permanently station heavy American military weaponry inside its borders, part of a U.S. plan under consideration to bolster its presence in Eastern Europe and the Baltic states to deter possible Russian aggression.

The Polish Defense Ministry said the plan would call for the U.S. to deploy battle tanks and other equipment in Poland. Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak said he discussed the plan with U.S. military officials in Washington last month and was assured a decision would be made soon.

“This is another step to increase U.S. presence in Poland and the region,” Warsaw’s Defense Ministry said.

If approved by U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter and President Barack Obama, the U.S. would store fighting vehicles and position as many as 5,000 troops in Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Poland and possibly Hungary, all countries once part of the Soviet sphere of influence
