Poland expects that it will sign a deal with U.S. defense firm Raytheon to buy eight Patriot missile defense systems by the end of this year, Polish Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz said on Friday.

"We hope that we will sign the contract by more or less the end of the year," Macierewicz told reporters.

Macierewicz also said that the first of the eight systems, which he said would all be equipped with built-in army battle command system (ABCS) radars, will likely arrive in Poland two years after the contract is signed.
