Donald Tusk, Poland’s prime minister, has rejected the lastest terms offered by the US, in order to host a missile defence shield.
Any deal must increase Poland’s own security, said Mr Tusk, and he dismissed the latest offer as unsatisfactory.
“We are ready to co-operate but we are waiting for an answer from the American side”, Mr Tusk told a news conference.
As part of a defence shield against possible attack, the US want to place 10 interceptors missiles in Poland. Russia and China condemned that move.
Also in the defence shield plans, the US is seeking permission to build a radar station in the Czech Republic.
The project would upset the military balance in Europe, said Russia, warning that it could have no choice but to point its own missiles at the installations.
