Poland is seeking Germany's “yes” to send Leopard tanks to Ukraine, Poland's prime minister said on Monday.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said his country would ask Germany for permission to re-export tanks to Ukraine.
He added; "Even if we did not get this approval, we would still transfer our tanks together with others to Ukraine. The condition for us at the moment is to build at least a small coalition of countries."
Ukrainian officials have been pleading with Western allies to supply them with Leopard tanks for months, but Germany has held back from sending them or allowing other NATO countries to reexport them.
Leopards, which are held by an array of NATO countries, are seen by defence experts as the most suitable for Ukraine.
The issue of supplying the German-made Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine has also dominated recent discussions among Western allies.
