Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu within the conference’s framework will hold a number of bilateral meetings with the foreign colleagues, Koshelev said.
The conference is aimed at discussing international security problems, ways of settling regional crises with emphasis on the military-political analysis. The withdrawal of international coalition forces from Afghanistan, as well as military measures that could “prevent a scenario of turning the country into a terrorist training range” will be among the key issues at the forum. “We hope to discuss the topic of military and military-technical co-operation with the government of Afghanistan,” the official added.
Military experts will also discuss the aggravation of the situation in the Middle East and North Africa; they will also touch upon projects of the “color revolutions” in former Soviet states.
