BEIJING, October 11. /TASS/. The sixth Moscow Conference on International Security, to be held next year, will be dedicated to antiterrorism efforts, like the previous one, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told Russian journalists Tuesday on the sidelines of the Xiangshan International Security Forum.
The issue of the fight against international terrorism was in the focus the conference held in late April 2016, the deputy minister recalled.
"We decided to hold a similar conference next year. We always think for a long time what the upcoming discussions should focus on. We think that the topic of our regular forum should remain the same," Antonov said.
He said the Defense Ministry is convinced that "there is nothing more urgent" than the problem of international terrorism.
"And we think the future meeting in Moscow will make it possible for us to once again sit together and think what we may do jointly to make the world safer in practice," Antonov said.
The fifth Moscow Conference on International Security was held in the Russian capital on April 27-28. As reported earlier, it involved a record 500 guests from 80 countries. The key discussion topic was "Terrorism as the key threat to global security".
