MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. On April 26-27, the Russian Defense Ministry will convene the Sixth Moscow Conference on Global Security, dedicated to the fight against terrorism and regional threats, Defense Minister General Sergei Shoigu said during a telephone conference at the ministry.
"The fight against international terrorism and security threats facing Europe, the Asian-Pacific region, Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa will top the conference agenda," the minister noted. Besides, the ways to protect information space will also be discussed.
According to Shoigu, the conference has been becoming more popular with each passing year. "As many as 24 defense ministers, heads of seven international organizations and 14 deputy defense ministers have already confirmed their participation," Shoigu said. On the whole, more than 700 guests, including around 500 representatives of foreign countries, are expected to attend the Moscow Security Conference.
"The large number of participants shows that the Moscow conference has become a platform appropriate for exchanging experience on maintaining domestic, regional and global security," the Russian defense minister pointed out.
"We expect that debates during the conference will allow us to adopt common approaches towards resolving crises and will help build confidence and understanding between our countries," Shoigu said.
