Georgiaт President wants the missile defense. 22505.jpegThe Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili said that his country would welcome deployment a radar in the X-band - an element of regional missile defense system that is designed to protect Central Asia and the Middle East from Iran - on its territory, reported "Rosbalt".

As is known, currently the U.S. Senators Kyl and Kirk are hinting to the Pentagon about the need to deploy a radar not in Turkey but in Sakartvelo.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Giorgi Baramidze stressed that the idea of the U.S. Republican Senators to place on the territory of the republic radar defense system - is very interesting.

"The U.S. is Georgia's strategic partner, and if this issue will be formally put on the agenda, the Georgian side would consider it very seriously and adequately" - he said.

However, Deputy Prime Minister stressed that Tbilisi welcomes any idea that promotes peace and stability in the Caucasus.


Representatives of the Republican Party in the U.S. Senate have already announced that they want to agree to install a radar in Georgia. They appealed to the president Barack Obama with this idea.

Senators' proposition is a response to the conditions of the Turkish Government in connection with the U.S. plans to deploy elements of missile defense there. The fact that Ankara agreed to deploy the U.S. radar TPY-2 only if the U.S. will not tell Israel information gathered by radar. In addition, Turkey wants to have full control over defense system installed on their territory.
