MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Talks lie ahead with Kazakhstan to prolong Russia's use of the Balkhash radar station based there as part of Russia's defense shield early warning system.

Russia's government has approved documents for signing a deal to extend the facility's operation under a 1994 accord between the two states, the official portal of legal information reported on Wednesday.

Balkhash belongs to Kazakhstan, but is operated by Russia under five-year deals to use the radar, communications posts and engineering systems installed there.
