German Chancellor Angela Merkel (L-R), Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev and France's President Nicolas Sarkozy arrive for a working meeting at the "Le Cercle villa" in Deauville October 19, 2010. Russia wants to take part in a NATO-backed missile defence shield and will go to next month's NATO summit, softening its stance after reassurances from France and Germany, a source close to participants said on Tuesday.
