MOSCOW, May 24 (Itar-Tass) - Afghanistan will be in the focus of the next international conference on security the Russian defence ministry plans to hold in Moscow in 2014, a source in the defence ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“In 2014, a larger part of coalition forces will be withdrawn from Afghanistan. The military political situation in the region will inevitably change. Russia and the world community should be ready for new challenges,” the source said.
The Russian defence ministry organized its first sewcurity conference in Moscow on May 3-4, 2012. It was dedicated to the problems of missile defence. The second such conference, on military and political aspects of European security, is ending its work in Moscow on Friday.
