The social democratic leader Jiri Paroubek says during his term as the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Defence failed to inform him about negotiations between Czech and American military experts concerning the possible situation of a U.S. tracking radar in the Czech Republic. In a Czech TV talk show on Sunday, Mr Paroubek said he was first informed about the ongoing talks just before last year's elections by the American ambassador to Prague.
