RUSSIAN concerns over Washington's plan for a missile shield in Europe will be eased only if Russian officers have permanent access to the shield facilities, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said overnight.

"In all these many proposals we are interested only in two things: the permanent presence of our officers and reliable technological means of monitoring (activity at the sites)," Mr Lavrov said on the Ekho Moskvy radio station.

This does not sound resonable nor prudent. I dont see why czech and poland would entertain such a silly notion. I dont see a problem with a international body monitering these sites. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov threatened that Moscow could react with 'measures of military-technical character' if elements of the US missile defence system are deployed in Poland and the Czech.
