MOSCOW, February 13./TASS/. Plans to deploy elements of the European missile defense system have not been reversed, Polish Ambassador to Russia Katarzyna Pelczynska-Nalecz told Tass on Friday.
"Plans stay in place," the diplomat said, adding that they had been coordinated "before the Ukrainian crisis".
"Nothing has been changed because of it," she confirmed, saying under the plans elements of the European missile defense shield were to be deployed before 2018.
The US has announced plans to reject the deployment of the fourth stage of the missile defense system in Europe and to refocus towards protection against potential North Korea missile attacks. Infographics by TASS
