Romania wants to sign anti-missile shield agreement with U.S. this fall

Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi on Thursday expressed hope that an agreement concerning the placement of a U.S. missile system in Romania could be signed this fall.

“As the experts have concluded negotiations, the agreement must be validated by policy makers and we hope to sign it this fall,” Baconschi said.

Baconschi said that he held talks with U.S. Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscherm on Wednesday and they believed that the agreement should be signed at the highest level, by Romanian President Traian Basescu and U.S. President Barack Obama, or at least in their presence.
