MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov plans to take part in the Munich Security Conference next month, Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.
"The participation of Sergey Lavrov in the Munich conference on security policy issues is planned," the diplomat said. "As for the Russian delegation and its members, we will officially announce this later."
Speaking on the meeting with the US delegation, Zakharova said Russia is waiting for Washington to take a decision on the level of its participation in the conference. "We will judge by who will be delegated to Munich," she said, adding that "after this there can be talk about the contacts."
The Munich Security Conference will be held from February 17 through February 19, 2017.
