Abstract: 

One of the most important issues facing America is to deploy missile defense shield against ballistic missile attacks. In addition to missile defense shield in Turkey, United States took measures to strengthen Persian Gulf States’ air defense capability. Providing Patriot air defense systems to four Arab states in Persian Gulf and sending X-band radars to these countries are among these measures. The aim of this paper is to identify and recognize the consequences of the missile defense shield for Iran’s peripheral environment and its impact on Iran’s national security and interests and finally, ways of dealing with it in Iran’s security environment and to minimize possible damages. In this regard, the position of missile defense in America's national security strategy is examined and then its history has been studied. Then, the trends and objectives of the missile defense shield in Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Persian Gulf have been studied, and finally, descriptions about the impacts of missile defense on Iran’s national security presented.
