Negotiations with Poland on Missile Defense
We have seen Prime Minister Tusk's remarks concerning Missile Defense negotiations and are studying them closely. Poland remains a close and important ally of the United States. We remain in negotiations with Poland and do not plan to comment publicly on the details.
Missile defense is an important potential area of cooperation between the United States and Poland. An agreement would be an important means of deepening the defense and security relationship between our countries. This is also important for the security of NATO nations as recognized in the Bucharest summit communique which endorsed this effort and spoke of its importance to the security of the Alliance.
