Romania accepted the location of the US antimissile system on its territory

Russia requires the official explanations from the US and Europe

In brief: Basescu is sure that such system is to defend Romanian territory from missile attacks.

Romania agreed to locate on its territory the elements of the US new antimissile defense. This statement was declared by the President Traian Basescu. This new system is planned to be started in 2015. Romania got the official propositions of the US President Barack Obama on cooperation in this program. Thus on Romanian territory the interceptors medium-range will be located.

Basescu is sure that such system is to defend Romanian territory from missile attacks. According to the opinion of the President of Romania, this decision does not threaten Russia’s interests which are absolutely against the location of the US antimissile defense in Eastern Europe. Remind that earlier the location of such US military elements was accepted by Poland. The Minister of foreign affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrov however has asked for the official explanations of such activities. Meantime Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has stated that Russia will continue developing its attacking systems in order to keep world’s balance.
