Polish Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak said the planned Polish missile defense system could cost as much as $6 billion, RIA Novosti reported Saturday.
"We want it [creation of the missile defense system] to happen in cooperation with France, Germany and other our allies. NATO welcomes the initiatives of the countries to build up their joint defense capabilities. This is so-called smart defense," Siemoniak told the Polish Press Agency.
Earlier this month, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said Warsaw was in need of its own missile defense system, which would be a part of the NATO missile defense system.
