BRUSSELS - NATO and Russia failed on Wednesday to narrow differences on missile defense cooperation, but the head of the Western military alliance said he was optimistic they could agree a deal by next May.

NATO and Russia agreed at a summit in Lisbon in November to cooperate on missile defense, but the alliance has given a cold shoulder to Moscow's proposal of a "sectoral" system dividing the continent into Russian and NATO zones of responsibility.

NATO has also resisted Moscow's call for binding guarantees that a European missile shield would not weaken Russia's nuclear arsenal.
