President Klaus is to visit the United States in March to discuss the possible deployment of a US radar base on Czech territory. According to Thursday's edition of Mlada Fronta Dnes the Czech president will meet with US Vice-President Dick Cheney to discuss the conditions of such a deal. Unlike Poland, the Czech Republic has not yet raised any conditions in connection with the radar base and talks are expected to last until the end of the year. Critics of the US plan emphasize the fact that the American missile defence system in central Europe would not adequately address Europe's defence needs.
