WARSAW, April 17 (Itar-Tass) — The presidents of Poland, Latvia and Estonia at a NATO summit due in Chicago will raise the problem of the deployment of the ABM system in their respective region and discuss Russia's plans to deploy Iskander missile systems on the territory of the Kaliningrad region in the west of Russia, the presidents of the three countries, Bronislaw Komorowski, Andris Berzins and Toomas Hendrik Ilvels declared at a joint press conference in Warsaw on Tuesday.
President Komorowski came out in support of plans of the defense of their countries and the construction of NATO's anti-missile shield and an air defense system. Komorowski declared that their countries had been following Russia's plans to deploy new systems in the Kaliningrad region, adding that these plans aroused concern among Russia's neighbors - Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The ABM problem is connected with the threats from the south, posed by Iran, while the ABM defense is also used as a sub-context for the deployment of other systems in our region, President Ilves said. Being allies our countries would not like the security of our region to drop to a lower level because of our consent to take part in the defense against "the Iranian threats," the Estonian president said.
Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite did not take part in the Warsaw press conference devoted to the forthcoming NATO summit.
