Former foes, now strategic partners: the Nato alliance - originally set up to counter the Soviet Union - has welcomed the Russian president to what has been dubbed one of the most important summits in its history.

Will it bring a new era of co-operation between Nato and Russia? Will Russia join the battle against the Taliban and approve a missile shield in Europe? And what will Russia get in return?

Inside Story discusses with guests: Rabah Ghezali, a writer on Transatlantic relations; Candace Rondeaux, a senior analyst with the International Crisis Group; and Alistair Crooke, a founding director of the Conflicts Forum and a former Middle East advisor to the EU.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Saturday, November 20, 2010.
