A U.S expert has defended the deployment of U.S. anti-missile systems in Europe, the planned shield in Central Europe would contribute to the security of both the United States and Europe.

Jack Crouch, a former aide to U.S. President George W. Bush, said Tuesday at a conference that NATO must make it clear that the U.S. system would serve the alliance, which should have the capability of protecting its members, the Czech news agency CTK reported.

Warning Europe is at risk of being attacked by missiles sooner than the United States, Crouch said the system is not cheap, but Washington trusts the investment.

He also said existing anti-missile installations in the U.S. states of Alaska and California are not sufficient to ensure security and anti-missile systems will be efficient if they are globally deployed.

Washington plans to build a radar base in the Czech Republic's Brdy military district, some 90 km southwest of Prague, as well as an interceptor missile base in neighboring Poland.

But Russia is strongly opposed to the system, saying the plan poses a threat to its strategic interests. Some 70 percent of Czech citizens also oppose the project.
