Belarus hosting Minsk Dialogue Forum

Belarus hosting Minsk Dialogue Forum

The Minsk Dialogue Forum "European Security: Stepping Back from the Brink" is taking place in the Belarusian capital, BelTA has learned.

Participating in the two-day event are high-level officials, former politicians with international experience, and academic experts. Their total number is expected to be higher than last year when more than 500 representatives from 59 countries attended the forum.

The official part of the event will be preceded by the partner session of young leaders from the countries that determine the security of Eastern Europe. The organizers will also present an analytical report on the security situation in and around Belarus, and on the threats that dominate the region.

The official opening of the forum will be followed by a session featuring the current ministers of foreign affairs. The meeting will highlight views of individual states on developments in Europe.

All stakeholders will be able to openly discuss the present and future of European security and seek mutually acceptable standards of security for all. The event will bring together senior officials and leading experts from the EU, Russia, the United States, China and countries of Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia.

The Minsk Dialogue was launched as an expert initiative in early 2015. It offers an open platform for research and discussion about international relations and security in Eastern Europe without geopolitical dividing lines. Minsk Dialogue events regularly gather international experts as well as high-ranking state figures and diplomats.
