Poland gets a visit from an angry Russian diplomat

Thursday, September 11, 2008

The Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, has arrived in Poland on his first visit since Russia sent troops into Georgia last month. In talks with the Polish prime minister and foreign minister, Mr. Lavrov is expected to express Moscow's anger at the agreement by Poland to host part of the planned American missile defense system in Eastern Europe. The Russian military has warned that the installation could become a target for a nuclear strike.
