U.S. pushes for missile shield base in Turkey
However no further details have been revealed.
Washington claims its planned anti-missile shield is meant to provide defence against such states as Iran and North Korea.
Moscow is strongly opposed to the plans, and sees the system as a threat to Russia’s national security.
Russia has offered joint use of a radar station in Azerbaijan – which borders Turkey – as an alternative to bases in the Czech Republic and Poland.
However the U.S. says it intends to push ahead with its original plans.
