MOSCOW, February 25. /TASS/. The defense ministers and delegations from military agencies from 79 countries have been invited to attend the 4th Moscow conference on international security in mid-April, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Wednesday.
The conference, organized annually by the Russian Defense Ministry, will be held on April 16-17.
"The defence ministers and delegations from military agencies from 79 states, heads of international organisations, Russian officials and also representatives of expert community and academic circles have been invited for the forum," Antonov told journalists.
At a plenary session, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu and Russia's chief of General Staff, Valery Gerasimov will "state their views on the key threats of global security and possible areas of cooperation on countering these threats," Antonov said.
The participants will discuss the prospects of international military cooperation in the fight against terrorism, and also the role of military-political tools in supporting regional and global stability, he said.
Antonov reminded that the Moscow conference traditionally focuses on "the most topical issues of global and regional security."
The previous security conference was held in Moscow in late May 2014 and was attended by more than 300 representatives from 40 countries. NATO and EU states then refused to participate.
