The USA may install one of the ABM systems, a HF X-band radar, in Georgia, reads The Independent Newspaper referring to Reuters

The Georgian Defense Ministry refrains from any comments about this information, but local experts do not exclude deployment of the US ABM system in the South Caucasus.

"Tbilisi and Washington yet had no substantive talks on deployment of such radar in Georgia. There is a proposal of the American side only. There are no preconditions that Georgia may abandon deeper cooperation with the USA”, Military Expert Koba Liklikadze said.

Earlier former Director of the Missile Defense Agency General Henry Obering repeatedly expressed the Pentagon’s wish to install a HF X-band radar either in Georgia or in Turkey.
