MOSCOW, 4 March. /TASS/. The Moscow conference on security, due in April, will be devoted to international terrorism and the situation in Afghanistan, Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told a news conference at TASS on Thursday.
"There are plans for raising the theme of the situation inside and around Afghanistan, the activity of the terrorist group called the Islamic State and plans for international military cooperation geared to struggle against the terrorist threat," he said.
The theme of struggle against international terrorism will be on the agenda of the section meeting on April 16. Antonov said the problem of Asia was of great concern for many countries.
