Developing fully professional armed forces would, however, involve even greater expense. 31 Further, all this took place in context of difficult 26 East-Central Europe after the Cold War economic transitions which were likely to severely limit the resources available for defence reforms. Relying on national defence as the main element of their security policies also risked exacerbating the security dilemma the East-Central European states faced in their relations with their neighbours. By strengthening their armed forces, they might undermine the security of their neighbours, leading their neighbours to respond by strengthening their own armed forces.
2 Walesa, whose advisers were in regular contact with the Soviet ambassador in Warsaw, accepted that the PZPR be included in a Solidarity-led coalition, reassuring the Soviets that such a government would not threaten 'the functioning of the Warsaw Pact'. 3 The formation of the Solidarity-led government under Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki in September 1989 resulted in a compromise under which the Ministries of Defence and Interior remained under the nominal control of the PZPR, but President Jaruzelski (presenting himself as a national leader above political divisions) was given ultimate authority in defence and foreign policy.
Their ability, therefore, to sustain credible policies of 'armed neutrality' was questionable. With the end of the Cold War, further, it was no longer clear what neutrality meant or how it related to the security problems of the 1990s. 13 Neutrality seemed of little relevance to the ethnic and national conflicts which appeared to be the primary threat to East-Central European security in the new environment. Perhaps most significantly, however, a policy of neutrality might limit or even preclude political and economic integration with the West, particularly the EU.
