MUNICH, February 6 /TASS/. The 51st International Security Conference opened in Munich, Germany, on Friday assembling about 400 delegates, including about 20 heads of state and government; 60 foreign and defense ministers, businessmen, scientists and representatives of human rights groups from around the globe.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will deliver a speech on Saturday, February 7.
Four panel discussions will take place on the conference’s first day. They will be devoted to questions of counteraction to new threats in cyberspace; development of architecture of European security; challenges emerging in the Asia-Pacific Region and refugees.
The conference closing on February 8 is taking place in Munich’s fashionable Bayerischer Hof hotel in conditions of high security. About 4,000 policemen will guard law and order during the conference. Police have sealed off the area close to the hotel in the city center.
The Munich Security Conference was founded by German journalist Ewald von Kleist in 1962 as a meeting of representatives of defense ministries of NATO member states. Politicians and military representatives from Central and Eastern Europe started attending the conference in 1999.
