Missile Defence and the UK

Lieutenant-General Ronald Kadish of the Missile Defence Agency set out his stall for co-operation from allies on national missile defence, as reported in the Washington Post. This is one of the first fruits of the abrogation of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty as it allows the US to share technology and co-operate with interested parties.

Kadish did not play favourites although early options "likely to come up, they said, are basing a radar in Turkey for early warning of missile launches from the Middle East; stationing interceptors in one or more central European countries; or using British shipborne radar technology".

There should be plenty of movement on this in the months ahead although the UK media probably won't break wind on this subject until next year.
