Russian and Polish officials will meet in Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the U.S.-proposed plans to deploy anti-missile components in Poland, a Russian diplomat said.

"During the talks the Russian side will be represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak and Poland by Deputy Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski," RIA Novosti news agency quoted the anonymous source as saying on Monday.

The Polish delegation will strive to settle Russia's concern and objection to the deployment of U.S. missile interceptors on its land.

Washington says the plan, which includes the installation of nine interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar in the Czech Republic, aims to guard against missile attacks from "rogue states" and not to treat Russia as the suppositious enemy.

Moscow, however, views the system as a threat to its security despite such assurances from the United States.

Several rounds of talks between top U.S. and Russian diplomats and defense officials have failed to bridge their differences.

The last face-to-face meeting held on Sunday between outgoing Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart George W. Bush in the capacity of presidency also failed to reach a compromise.
