The Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation is organizing a regular Conference on international security to be held in Moscow on April 16-17, 2015.

The developments of the past year have clearly demonstrated significant destructive changes in the system of global security.

The longstanding mechanisms for the settlement of international problems have started to malfunction. There is an obvious crisis of trust affecting all spheres including military-to-military interaction.

It seems that military agencies are in a position to assume the lead role in finding ways to create a reliable «safety net», solid guarantees to maintain international peace and stability.

We hope that open and pragmatic discussions at Moscow conference will bring us closer to establishing possible
mechanisms of cooperation in this field.

Therefore, we are sincerely interested to assess the role of military-political tools in ensuring global and regional
security. In our view the efficiency and viability of such tools would require additional scrutiny under present-day
conditions.

Special attention will be paid to the issues of countering terrorism as they gain more and more complexity. Strengthening of international military-to-military cooperation may serve as a critical component in our fight against terrorism in all of its forms.

The forum will gather heads of defence ministries, leadership and experts of international organizations, representatives of non-governmental organizations and academic community.
