Romania President Traian Basescu said the country’s top defence body has approved a US proposal to place anti-ballistic interceptors in Romania as part of a revamped US missile shield.

President Basescu said the measure is not directed against Russia and added that the interceptors will increase national security.

US vice president Joe Biden was in Romania in October as part of a tour of central Europe, where he presented a revamped US missile shield to replace a scrapped Bush-era plan to install interceptors in Poland and a radar in the Czech Republic.

It was unclear whether the announcement reflected any decision by the Obama administration on where to place interceptors for its European system.

The measure has passed the Supreme Defence Council and must be approved by Parliament.
