"As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with the missile system," Obama said in a speech in Prague. The Czech Republic is one of two sites in eastern Europe for a mooted U.S. missile shield that has upset Russia.

"If the Iranian threat is eliminated, we will have a stronger basis for security, and the driving force for missile construction in Europe will be removed."
