Brigadier General Mehdi Rabbani is to make a speech in the meeting as well.

Safeguarding the peace and stability in Asia with regards to the latest developments in light of the UN Charter is among the issues being discussed in the three-day Forum, which may also include world security and weaponry control, technology and international security, artificial intelligence and future weapons, marine security, marine security engineering, methods to strategic trust-building, security in the Middle East, as well as international cooperation for fighting terrorism.

Saying that the role of Iran in creating security in the region is very important, he added that China is one of the biggest importers of energy from the region and expansion of ties between Iran and China will help both countries that have common interests.
