U.S., Czech Officials Discuss Missile Plan
Baltimore Sun

PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- U.S. and Czech officials discussed yesterday plans by Washington to deploy parts of a new missile defense system in the Czech Republic. The U.S. made a formal request in January to place a radar base southwest of Prague and 10 interceptor missiles in neighboring Poland as part of plans for a missile defense shield that Washington says would protect against a potential threat from Iran or North Korea. The meeting between John Rood, assistant secretary of state for international security and nonproliferation, and Czech Deputy Prime Minister Tomas Pojar came just two weeks ahead of a visit by President Bush, and missile defense is likely to be high on his agenda.
