The UK will send 140 military engineers to Poland to help the country, the Ministry of Defence said on Thursday, APA reports citing UK governmental website.

"140 military engineers are deploying to Poland to provide specialist support in response to the pressures from irregular migration at the Belarus border," the ministry said in a statement.

"Specialists from the 32 Engineer Regiment, the Royal Engineers, will provide bilateral support to Poland, a NATO ally and key European partner. Personnel will support Polish troops with specific engineering tasks along the border including infrastructure support and repairing access roads, as well as planning support.

They will be on task from the end of December and the deployment is expected to last until April," the statement read.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said:

"Our commitment to European security is unwavering and we will always offer support to our allies. This non-combat support will assist Polish efforts to protect their border and pass on vital engineering expertise."
