BERLIN, January 26. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will attend a security conference in Munich on February 6-8, Wolfgang Ischinger, a former German deputy foreign minister and chairman of the conference, said on Monday.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is also expected to arrive in the Bavarian capital, Ischinger said, expressing hope that Poroshenko and Lavrov would meet on the sidelines of the Munich conference, an annual event held to discuss military and political affairs.
“They should certainly seize the opportunity,” the German diplomat noted.
The security conference in Munich will bring together some 20 heads of state and government alongside some 60 foreign and defense ministers. Among those due to attend are German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US Vice President Joseph Biden and US Secretary of State John Kerry.
The crisis in Ukraine and the fight against terrorism will be among the top issues to be discussed at this year's meeting.
