Poland plans to choose the supplier for medium-range missile defence system within the next few weeks.

"The (defence) minister's decision on the choice of supplier ... will be (ready) in April," Deputy Defence Minister Czeslaw Mroczek told Rzeczpospolita daily in an interview published on Thursday.

Mroczek said the ministry's experts will have worked out the details of a recommendation regarding the decision by the end of April.

Last year, Poland short-listed a consortium of France's Thales and European group MBDA, as well as US Raytheon, in its tender for the missile defence system.

Poland, a NATO member since 1999, had accelerated the process to select a supplier for the missile system after Russia's intervention in Ukraine prompted concern among NATO members in eastern Europe.
