MOSCOW, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry has confirmed that the International Security Conference will take place in Moscow on May 23-24.
“I’m glad to say that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has approved the ministry’s decision to hold the annual security conference,” Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told Rossiya24 TV Channel on Wednesday.
The conference will focus on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. Special attention will be paid to Afghanistan after the NATO-led coalition leaves the country, he said.
Up to 250,000 participants are expected to attend the forum, Antonov said.
“Now that Western countries - the US, Canada and even neutral European states - will not attend the Moscow conference, and this is a fact, its purpose is to show that we’re extending a hand, opening the Defense Ministry’s doors and providing a platform for discussion,” he said.
The events in Ukraine will have an impact on the conference, Antonov admitted.
“This year we’ll talk about color revolutions. It is necessary to find out what they mean and why they take place in different parts of the globe,” he added.
