Defence and security experts will flock to Bratislava for the annual Globsec conference, although in smaller numbers and under coronavirus-related limitations.
Foreign ministers from France, Turkey, and Grece are expected to attend. So are Austrian PM Sebastian Kurz and Belarussian opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya.
The conference that usually attracts high-level experts and politicians to Slovakia, takes place on October 7-8. All participants will be tested, using the exception from attendance limits as introduced by the public health authorities.
Massive testing planned
"It is our ambition to show that however long COVID-19 lingers, be it just this year or another two or three years, we cannot close down the economy for several years, but we must be absolutely responsible and we must make sure to minimise the risks. We need to learn to live with COVID," the conference founder Robert Vass told the media, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
