Russia to join US in developing an anti missile shield for Europe?

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday his country is considering a proposal to help develop a U.S.-led anti-missile shield for Europe — but says the whole idea still worries him.

Medvedev met the leaders of France and Germany for a summit in this Normandy beach resort that appeared to bring the three European powers closer together on security issues, despite concerns from some EU nations that were glad to break free of Moscow's orbit after communist times.

Medvedev agreed to attend a summit of NATO leaders in Portugal Nov. 19-20, expected to be attended by leaders including President Barack Obama.

    Merkel urged Medvedev for Russian support in helping to fight what she called the largest common threats facing the world, including terrorism.

    "We are all in the same boat when it comes to the real threats of the 21st century," Merkel said.

    With terrorist threats, concerns about Iran's nuclear program and the war in Afghanistan high on European governments' minds, security was a key theme of this week's summit.
