Colonel Jaroslaw Kembrowski, the military attache for Poland's embassy in Belarus, was summoned by the Defense Ministry in Minsk over the border migrant crisis.
“The Polish military attache was told the Polish side's accusations that Belarusian military has anything to do with the migrant crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus are baseless and illegal,” the ministry's press service told Belta news, adding that they are concerned about the number of Polish troops amassing at the border.
Poland deployed 12,000 soldiers to the area after a crisis meeting on Monday. Warsaw has accused Belarus of hostile actions by pushing the migrants towards the shared border.
An estimated 3,000-4,000 migrants have already gathered at the border on the Belarusian side. Over 10,000 more are believed to be elsewhere in Belarus and are also preparing to cross into Poland, Polish government spokesman Piotr Muller told reporters on Monday.
