German Chancellor Angela Merkel travels to Poland on Friday for talks with Polish leaders expected to include a US request to set up a controversial missile defense base in Poland. Merkel said earlier this week that missile defense would be on the agenda during her meetings with Poland's President Lech Kaczynski and his twin brother Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski during her two-day visit. In an interview with Germany's ZDF television broadcast earlier this week, Merkel said Germany prefers "a solution within NATO and also an open discussion with Russia" about missile defense and said she would discuss her position during the trip to Warsaw.
