Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi on Thursday expressed hope that an agreement concerning the placement of a U.S. missile system in Romania could be signed this fall.

"As the experts have concluded negotiations, the agreement must be validated by policy makers and we hope to sign it this fall," Baconschi told a public debate organized by the ministry on Romania's involvement with the missile defense system.

Baconschi said that he held talks with U.S. Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscherm on Wednesday and they believed that the agreement should be signed at the highest level, by Romanian President Traian Basescu and U.S. President Barack Obama, or at least in their presence.

The Foreign Ministry announced late Wednesday that Romanian and U.S. delegations had finalized the draft agreement on the deployment of a U.S. missile defense system in Romania.
