Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb.4 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian delegation led by President Mikheil Saakashvili will attend the Munich Security Conference. The Georgian delegation has already headed for Germany from the U.S. where the Georgian President was on a one-week visit, the Georgian President's Administration told Trend on Saturday.
Deputy Secretary of National Security Council Batu Kutelia said Mr Saakashvili will focus in his speech in Munich on security issues amidst the Russian occupation.
International Security Conference, aimed at discussing European missile defense and elaborating a possible compromise solution to Russia, opened on Friday.
In Munich the parties will try to find a "compromise solution" of missile defense system problem that is acceptable both for Russia and the United States.
Russia and the U.S. can not come to a consensus about what should be the architecture of missile security in Europe. Russia insists on its participation in the missile defense system (European missile defense) being formed by NATO and the U.S. and, at least, requires assurance that the system will not be directed against it. U.S. is neither prepared to give such a guarantee not to link their missile defense system with a country that is not a member of NATO.
The Munich Security Conference is one of the world's largest discussion forums on this subject; each year representatives of more than 40 countries arrive in the Bavarian capital to attend this event.
The Munich Conference was founded in 1962 as "a meeting of defense officials" of the NATO member countries. Currently it is an international discussion forum, which gathers politicians, diplomats, military officers, businessmen, scientists and public figures from over 40 countries (members of NATO and the EU, as well as states playing an important role in the world - Russia, China, Japan, India and others).
The conference's agenda includes such topical issues of world politics as combating international terrorism, reform of the UN and NATO, settlement of conflicts in hot spots and strengthening regional and global security.
