MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will not attend the 52nd Munich Security Conference because of his working schedule, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"Currently the conference’s dates do not comply with the president’s working schedule," Peskov said.
The conference in Munich will bring together heads of state and government alongside with foreign and defense ministers on February 12-14.
The conference was founded by German journalist Ewald von Kleist in 1962 as a meeting of representatives of defense ministries of NATO member states.
Politicians and military representatives from Central and Eastern Europe started attending the conference in 1999.
Vladimir Putin took part in the Conference in 2007.
