According to Polish radio station IAR, Polish Defense Minister Jerzy Szmajdzinski announced yesterday that his country's involvement in the programme to create the Star Wars missile defense shield could include the deployment of elements of this system on Polish territory. However, the minister did not exclude the possibility that Poland will merely join the list of countries that will be under this 'security umbrella'. Decisions regarding this question have not yet been taken, although it is to be discussed on Thursday in Warsaw at a meeting between Polish and American officials.
