Polish and US officials discuss Polish military upgrade

Poland's Foreign Ministry says Polish and US representatives are holding another round of talks on Washington's proposal to place a missile defense base in the Eastern European country. US Embassy spokesman Andrew Schilling says Thursday's discussions between the top US diplomat for the issue, Stephen Mull, and chief Polish negotiator Witold Waszczykowski are to focus on the US role in upgrading Poland's military as part of an agreement for accepting a base. Washington wants to place 10 interceptors in Poland as part of a global system it says is necessary to protect Europe and the US from potential attacks from so-called rogue states. The system would also include a radar base in neighboring Czech Republic.
