The 9th International Institute for Strategic Studies Regional Security Summit — the Manama Dialogue 2013 — will be held from Dec. 6 to Dec. 8 and it will focus on the Syrian issue, energy security in the Middle East and other major issues.

The inter-governmental summit allows national security leaders from the Gulf, wider Middle East, North America, Europe and Asia discuss bilaterally and multilaterally on key security and foreign policy challenges.

The forum, launched in 2004, has established itself as an important platform to debate major regional and global security, political and economic issues.

“Senior governmental delegations will assemble to address key issues, such as Syria, Egypt, sectarianism and extremism, Gulf Cooperation Council integration and military cooperation, and with some 20 ministers already confirmed to participate, the Manama Dialogue continues to strengthen the international security architecture,” said Mark Allworthy, IISS-Middle East managing director.
