MOSCOW, May 10 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Defence Ministry on Saturday, May 10, presented a new section of its official website that will be devoted entirely to the III Moscow International Security Conference to be held on May 23-25.
Online broadcasts from the conference will be available on the ministry’s website.
“To provide the foreign audience with objective information on the work and results of the conference, we are planning to launch an English version of the section,” the Defence Ministry press service told ITAR-TASS.
The move was taken despite the fact that, as Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov said, “European countries have made the decision to boycott our conference”.
The Russian-language version of the section offers ample information on the conference programme and multimedia materials covering the main aspects of the forum, the press service said.
A plenary meeting and thematic discussions will be held during the conference. Members of the Russian political leadership, officials from the Russian and foreign defence and foreign ministries, and senior officials from international organisations will speak.
Section One will focus on the situation in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) from that country, including the format and obligations of a new international mission there.
Section Two will concentrate on conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa, including the rejection of armed interference in Syria, chemical disarmament in Syria, and the threat of spread of terrorism to other Middle East countries.
After the conclusion of the conference, Defence Ministry officials will meet members of the media.
