Missile defense talks to be concluded in September
The Czech Defense Ministry says it is expecting talks with the United States on a secondary missile defense treaty to be concluded next month.  The Czech-US missile defense deal is based on two

treaties.

 

The Czech government has already approved the main bilateral treaty allowing the US to build a radar base near Prague. The second, "complementary," treaty deals with such issues as taxes and the legal status of US Soldiers to be deployed at the base. Both treaties need parliamentary approval. (AP)
