18. Poland having second thoughts about participating in U.S. missile defence
Poland having second thoughts about participating in U.S. missile defence

WARSAW, Poland - Poland is reconsidering it's participation in Washington's European-based missile defence system. Defence Minister Bogdan Klich says he wants to ensure the missile system serves Poland's interests. Klich's comments underlined the shift in thinking under the new pro-business government that took office Friday.

There is anxiety in Poland that Warsaw could further strain its already shaky ties with Moscow by agreeing to allow U.S. interceptor missiles on its territory.

Other Polish leaders, including new Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, have warned against provoking Russia without being sure that Washington offers compensating benefits.
