Polish PM convinced anti-missile shield deal will be reached with U.S.
font size    

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said Tuesday he is convinced that Poland and the United States will reach an agreement on the deployment of parts of the U.S. anti-missile shield in the country.

Speaking to Polish Radio One, Kaczynski recalled that the recent talks between the Polish and U.S. presidents focused on the shield and Poland is closer to building such an installation.

However, he noted that negotiations with the Americans are still underway and Poland put forward a condition of strengthening its security.

Commenting on Russia's shield-related proposal, Kaczynski said it was a surprising suggestion and part of Russia's efforts to build its superpower position in the world.

On Jan. 20, the United States proposed installing parts of its anti-missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, a move strongly opposed by Russia, which warned that the project could trigger a new arms race.

Russian President Vladimir Putin changed his tune at the G8 summit in Germany last week. He proposed that the United States and Russia work together to set up the defensive system, which would be based at a Russian radar base in Azerbaijan instead of in central Europe.

Putin also suggested Turkey or Iraq be possible sites for the interceptor missiles -- not Poland.
