WARSAW - An early warning radar network between Poland, Norway and Turkey will facilitate an information exchange between NATO and Russia on airborne threats to their respective territories, Poland said Thursday.

"This is a trilateral initiative by Poland, Norway and Turkey," Polish defense ministry spokesman Robert Rochowicz told the AFP, but declined to provide further details other than to confirm the network would be headquartered in the Polish capital Warsaw.

"We consider it to be an important element of cooperation with our partners in the East," Polish PAP news agency quoted Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich as saying Thursday in Bialystok, eastern Poland.

The Warsaw headquarters of the project will collect data transmitted from radar bases in Norway, Poland and Turkey and inform Moscow if it detects an airborne threat. In return, Russia would provide NATO with its own information on similar airborne menaces.
