Poland's foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, says his country has agreed in principle to allow a U.S. missile defense system in the country. The Bush administration wants to put 10 interceptor missiles in Poland to defend against a potential strike by Iran. The project has infuriated Poland's neighbor, Russia, and caused concern among the Polish people.

Sikorski talks about what Poland wants in exchange.
