The Ministry points out that Russia, the UK and the United States have been instructed to organize this kind of conference as the depositaries for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
The forthcoming forum will be hosted by Finland, which is currently giving an in-depth consideration to items on the agenda. But Moscow deplores the fact that not all Middle East nations have agreed to attend the conference.
Russia will bend every effort to organize the forum in question, the Foreign Ministry says in a statement.
