A real partnership needs to be developed between NATO and Russia where both parties work together to resolve the multitude of modern security problems. The NATO-Russian Council is a good start, but further engagement of Russia in joint programmes and full transparency concerning NATO’s future plans will help to enhance the partnership. On the Russian side, there has to be flexibility, reciprocal transparency and good will toward NATO’s intentions.
