MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will head Russia’s delegation at the security conference in Munich in February this year, his press secretary Natalia Timakova said on Thursday.
"The prime minister has accepted this invitation [for conference] and after the discussion with the president a decision was taken that Medvedev will lead Russia’s delegation at the Munich conference," Timakova said.
Earlier on Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not attend the 52nd Munich Security Conference because of his working schedule.
"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.
