ABM system in Europe called a "provocation"

According to Austria's Defense Minister, the U.S. efforts to create an antimissile system in Europe are “a provocation.”

In an interview to an Austrian daily “Die Presse” prominent Austrian social-democrat Norbert Darabos said it makes no sense to create an anti-missile defense system in Europe because it would only “spark Cold War-time debates.”

The minister added he sees no threat for Europe from Iranian missiles.
