Revealed: U.S. may put missile defence in Lithuania

The U.S. is talking to Lithuania about the possibility of installing part of its missile defence system there if it fails to strike a deal with Poland, according to the chief Polish negotiator on missile defence.

Poland has agreed to base ten U.S. interceptor rockets on its soil but in exchange it is demanding billions of dollars to upgrade air defence systems.

Washington says it will look for another country if negotiations with Warsaw fail.

Russia strongly opposes the deployment of the missile defence shield, saying it threatens its security.
