NATO has completed a scheduled upgrade of a land-based Aegis Ashore ballistic missile system in Romania, which the military alliance said was purely defensive in nature.

A US Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system was deployed to the Deveselu base for the time of the upgrade and will now be redeployed as planned.
