Americans visited the radar station in Azerbaijan

At the last summit of the "Big Eight" in Germany Russian President Vladimir Putin suddenly proposed to use to deploy parts of a U.S. missile defense radar station in Azerbaijan, which is the birthplace of our leases until 2012.
Moscow strongly opposes U.S. plans to deploy antyraketnay system in Poland and the Czech Republic, plans foreseen that the South American government. Our homeland states that the system deployed in Europe, threatens Russian security. In turn, Washington denies this, he wants to warn system separate missile launches by rogue states such as Iran or North Korea.

But Washington’s strategic plans are not changed — as U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. will continue to create a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic.

But even in the best case, the object can only be a supplement to the system in Poland and the Czech Republic, and not a substitute for it.
In quite a sticky situation under this proposal Putin appeared Azerbaijan, who must balance the interests between United States, RF and adjoining Iran. Says Foreign Ministry spokesman Khazar Ibrahim.
"We now have a strategic partnership with the United States. We too are great, friendly relations with both Russia and Iran, and because we do not want any conflicts between these states. And anyway, we wish that our region was measured and not dangerous because unfortunately, for a long time he was enveloped in conflict. "
