'Lack of trust' between Russia and Europe

Russia's Deputy Defence Minister has told the BBC that there is still a lack of trust between Russia and the rest of Europe.

Anatoly Antonov said he would like to see more co-operation on Defence matters like terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.

But he said issues like the proposed US missile defence shield keep getting in the way.

He was talking to the BBC's Moscow Correspondent Daniel Sandford ahead of a conference this week on European Security.
