During the event, the Chief of Army Staff also met with other top military Commanders and senior officers of diplomatic and the intelligence community.

The three-day conference had in attendance more than 500 decision-makers from across the globe, including more than 25 heads of state and government, 80 foreign and defence ministers, and strong delegations from the new US administration and from Congress.

This year’s conference agenda focused on the future of transatlantic relations and NATO after the election of Donald Trump, the state of European cooperation in security and defence matters, relations with Russia as well as the war in Syria, the security situation in the Asia-Pacific, and information warfare.

Over the past five decades, the Munich Security Conference (MSC) has become a key annual gathering for the international “strategic community.” Since its foundation in 1963 as “Internationale Wehrkunde-Begegnung,” the MSC has been an independent forum dedicated to promoting peaceful conflict resolution and international cooperation and dialogue. In addition to the annual flagship conference in February, the MSC regularly convenes other high-profile events in capitals around the world.

The keynote address was delivered by Afghanistan President, Ashraf Ghani Ahmadza.
