Warsaw: Poland wants to build its own missile defence system with help from France and Germany, the Polish press agency reported Saturday.

"We want it (missile defence system] to happen in cooperation with France, Germany and other our allies. NATO welcomes the initiatives of the countries to build up their joint defence capabilities. This is so-called smart defence," Polish Defence Minister Tomasz Siemoniak told the agency.

The minister estimated the planned Polish missile defence system at $3-6 billion.

In early August, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said that Warsaw needed its own missile defence shield that would be a part of the NATO missile defence system.
