Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama during an EU summit to be held in Prague on April 5, the Dziennik daily reported on Thursday.

The EU summit will provide an occasion for Tusk to meet with President Obama face-to-face, the daily said, quoting a senior government official.

According to the daily, Tusk wants to get acquainted with U.S. plans concerning an anti-missile shield project.

Polish President Lech Kaczynski is also planning to meet with his U.S. counterpart during a NATO summit in Strasbourg to find out if ground base interceptors are to be installed in Redzikowo, the daily reported quoting a source at the Presidential Chancellery.

Under the Polish-U.S. accord signed last year, 10 ground base interceptors are to be installed in Redzikowo, northern Poland, part of a larger system that would include a radar system in the Czech Republic.

Russia objects the anti-missile shield plan, warning it will deploy a short-range missile system in its Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad bordering Poland, in response to U.S. plans to set up a missile shield in Poland.

U.S. President Barack Obama has said he supports missile defense in principle but wants to make sure the system is reliable and does not detract from other security priorities.
