US radar on Czech soil to fall under NATO’s remit

17-01-2008

The chief of the U.S Missile Defence Agency, Henry Obering, told a Czech National Security Council meeting on Thursday that any radar built by the United States in the Czech Republic would fall under the remit of NATO. Mr Obering is in the Czech Republic this week, accompanied by a US delegation, to discuss contracts and possible cooperation with Czech firms should the radar base be built. The Czech Republic is expected to make its final decision on the radar later this year.
