Standing alongside US Vice President Joe Biden, Poland's prime minister said Wednesday that his country is ready to participate in the Obama's administration's revamped plan for a US missile defense shield in Europe. Obama removed a major irritant in relations with Russia last month by scrapping US plans to place interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar in the Czech Republic - deployments Moscow treated as a threat. The Kremlin has praised Obama for the decision, but Russian officials also have said they want to know details about what system the US will put in place instead. In Warsaw, Prime Minister Donald Tusk welcomed the US proposal for a missile shield that would replace a bulkier version previously planned for Poland. "I want to stress that Poland views ... the new configuration for the missile shield as very interesting, necessary, and we are ready at the appropriate scale to participate," Tusk said at a news conference with Biden.
