MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will present his country's view of a Euro-Atlantic region of equal and inseparable security at a jubilee assembly of the international Munich Security Conference on January 31 - February 1.
The vision looks to an area without dividing lines based on “better trust, mutual consideration, and collective reaction to modern transnational challenges and threats”, a foreign ministry statement declared on Thursday. “Amid escalating instability in the world, special emphasis will be placed on the importance of the rule of law in international relations,” it adds.
Delegates will gather for a retrospective view on the assembly's 50-year history, assessing key aspects of the international and European agenda. The program will focus on strengthening security in the Euro-Atlantic region, the Ukrainian crisis and development of Russia-EU and Russia-NATO relations.
Further debate will cover cyber-space regulation, affairs in Syria and the Middle East, Iran's nuclear program, implications of the world financial crisis for global security and stability, and guaranteeing the security of power.
Since its launch in 1962, the Munich conference has become one of the most respected international forums on issues of security policy in the Euro-Atlantic area, Russia's foreign ministry says.
Russian representatives will be among national leaders, foreign and defense ministers, members of parliament and acclaimed international relations experts. Foreign Minister Lavrov plans discussions with counterparts on inter-state relations.
