Poland has signed a preliminary deal with the US on plans to host part of the controversial US defence shield.
The proposal is for the US to base 10 missile interceptors in Poland in exchange for help strengthening Polish air defences.
The US says the system will protect itself and Europe against long range missile attacks by "rogue states".
Correspondents say the deal is expected to heighten tension between the US and Russia, which has condemned the plans.
