He named the second session as ‘Economy and Regional Security’, adding that topics of discussion will focus on aspects of economic security in West Asia.
“The third session, named ‘Defense and Regional Security’, will be held on Monday evening,” he said. “It will include talks on defense and security cooperation in West Asia, as well as the role of Resistance Front, the Palestinian issue, and arms and security trends in the region.”
