Russia will not participate in the Munich conference

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the Russian delegation will not participate in the upcoming Munich Conference 2023 even if it is invited, stressing that the forum has lost its objectivity.

The Foreign Ministry also indicated that it had noted the tweet of the President of the Munich Security Conference, Christoph Heusgen, in which he stated that Russian officials would not invite them to the next meeting in 2023.

Where the Russian Foreign Ministry said: “We consider this a flagrant violation of the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and the Helsinki Final Act of 1975 issued by the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe on non-interference in internal affairs.”

The ministry also saw that “the refusal to dialogue or the unwillingness or fear to hear Moscow’s point of view and to discuss possible options to overcome the most difficult crisis on the European continent since World War II are unusual qualities for a diplomat who was previously Mr. Heusgen.”

He also considered that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that “with such statements and actions, the current president of the Munich Conference is tarnishing the reputation of the discussion forum that was respected,” adding, “Once again, we are compelled to announce with regret that the Munich Conference has turned in recent years into a purely Western forum and has lost its comprehensiveness and objectivity.” He is equal to the speakers speaking from his rostrum. The interest in this event in Moscow has disappeared.”

Where the Russian Foreign Ministry stated that “the same thing is happening in other non-Western capitals,” stressing that for these and other reasons, we previously decided to refuse to participate in the Munich conference meeting, pointing out that in view of what was achieved through this international discussion platform, it was difficult for Heusgen to expect Participation of official Russian representatives even if they are invited.
