Poland PM to meet Czechs on U.S. missiles

WARSAW, Poland, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Poland's prime minister is set to visit the Czech Republic to discuss a U.S. plan to build a Central European missile shield in the two neighboring states.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk is scheduled to visit Prague Thursday for talks with Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek on working out a joint stand on the U.S. missile defense plan, strongly opposed by Moscow, which claims it is aimed against Russia, the Warsaw Voice online said Monday.

The U.S. plan foresees a missile interceptors base in Poland and a radar site in the Czech Republic to defend against missiles fired from such countries as Iran or North Korea.

Washington-Moscow talks on the missile shield in Central Europe have not yet reached any agreement.

Tusk's liberal government, which was installed in mid-November, is not fully supporting the U.S. missile defense system plan as did the former conservative Cabinet of Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
