Austrian Defence Minister Norbert Darabos has called U.S. plans for a missile defence shield in eastern Europe a "provocation" reviving Cold War debates.
"That the United States are installing a defence shield in eastern Europe is a provocation in my view," Darabos was quoted as saying in an interview with daily Die Presse on Thursday.
"The U.S. has chosen the wrong path in my opinion. There is no point in building up a missile defence shield in Europe. That only unnecessarily rekindles old Cold War debates." Reuters
