Obama could see more cooperation with Russia

Since last summer’s invasion of Georgia, Russia has suffered a series of financial setbacks because of plunging oil prices.

The Russians have expressed alarm about some former allies joining NATO and about the proposed U.S. missile shield in eastern Europe.

But some believe the dispute about Iran’s nuclear program could be an area of cooperation between the U.S. and Russia.

Angela Stent, the director of the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European studies at Georgetown University, joins Martin Savidge to discuss how President Barack Obama might deal with Russian leaders and his approach to the proposed missile shield and Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
