Minister Dr Cerar at Munich Security Conference
At the 56th Munich Security Conference, Minister Dr Miro Cerar participated at the round tables on security in the Western Balkans and the Three Seas Initiative. On the margins of the conference, the Minister held bilateral meetings on current international topics with the foreign ministers of Iran, Egypt, Georgia and Croatia, as well as with the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Marija Pejčinović Burić. The Minister also attended the bilateral meeting of Prime Minister Marjan Šarec with the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti.
The Munich Security Conference traditionally focuses on current political and security challenges in Europe and worldwide. This year’s panel discussions addressed contemporary challenges and threats the Western world is facing, multilateralism and international order changes as well as global trade. The Western Balkans, human security, cyber and energy security, defence, health security and the situation in Africa were further topics discussed.
The underlying theme of the Conference was “Westlessness”, the gist of the Munich Security Report 2020, which focuses on the activity and the role of the West in an era of great power competition.
