NATO began implementing a defense plan for Poland and the Baltic states after Turkey dropped its objections, Reuters reported.

A plan for Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, the details of which are classified, was prepared at their request.

It was approved at the NATO summit in London in December. But Turkey did not allow NATO to implement this plan, setting the condition for recognizing Kurdish forces in northern Syria as terrorists. "The Turks have dropped their objections," an official of the French Armed Forces Ministry said on Wednesday.

A NATO diplomat said plans have now been finalized.

The defense plan of Poland and the Baltic countries, known as the Eagle Defender, is not directly related to the strategy of Turkey in Syria.

"Putting in place the political decision, which was reached in London, is a success for all NATO," Lithuanian Defence Minister Raimundas Karoblis told reporters.
