United State of America positively appreciates the negotiations with Russia on location of the US anti missile defence system in Europe, the Associated Press reported.

Daniel Fried, the US Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, said there was progress in the negotiations and we agreed to continue joint activities as a result of negotiations within the framework of the Council of Russia-NATO, RBK reported.

Henry Obering, the head of US Agency on Anti Missile Defence System, informed about proposals offered by the US during bilateral meeting of the Foreign and Defence Ministers in Moscow on 12 October to the allies in NATO. They proposed joint use of the Russian and American anti missile defence system in Gabala and Ermavir.

However, the US representatives intend to continue negotiations with Czechia and Poland concerning location of radar stations in Europe. Once Poland approves the proposals construction of the radar station may be launched in 2008.
