Targetting Russia: Poland and US Amend Missile Defence Agreement

Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will sign an amended agreement on missile defence today in Krakow.

Clinton, in Krakow for the Community of Democracies 10 year anniversary conference ,will put her signature to an amendment to an agreement signed two years ago between Sikorski and the then secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, when the Bush administration wanted to station an anti-missile system in Poland and the Czech Republic. The new Obama administration cancelled that plan last autumn.

According to new missile defence plans, mobile launchers incorporating SM -3 interceptors will be placed in Europe. Poland will probably station the system between 2015 and 2018.
