Poland to consult with Russia on U.S. missile shield - International Herald Tribune

MOSCOW: The Polish foreign minister pledged Monday that Warsaw would consult with Moscow about the missile defense facility that the United States wants to install in Poland.

Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, visiting Moscow, also signaled that Warsaw could soon unblock partnership talks between Russia and European Union.

The new Polish prime minister, Donald Tusk, has said he will resume talks with the United States on accepting a missile defense base in Poland but only after consulting with NATO and other neighboring countries - indicating a greater hesitancy over the plan than had the previous government, which firmly supported the U.S. move.

Sikorski, who held talks with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, said that missile defense consultations did not signal any concessions to Russia.

"The United States is our ally, and this decision is to be made by the United States and Poland," he said.
