Czech PM backs new US missile defence plan

The Czech Prime Minister has endorsed a revised US missile defence plan.



Prague: The Czech Prime Minister has endorsed a revised US missile defence plan.
Jan Fischer says his country is "ready to participate" in the new plan, which focuses on short- and medium-range interceptors.

Fischer spoke on Friday after a meeting with US Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden said Washington would send a team of experts to Prague next month for discussions.

Last month, the Obama administration scrapped blueprints to base a missile defence shield in Eastern Europe designed to shoot down long-range missiles that might be fired from Iran or other nations.
