China's Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi will attend the Munich Security Conference (MSC) in German, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday.

It is the first time that a Chinese foreign minister has attended the Munich meeting, spokesman Ma Zhaoxu told a regular news briefing.

The meeting, scheduled from Feb. 5 to 7, will focus on four topics, including energy and transport security, climate change, nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)'s new strategy and the Afghan issue, Ma said.

"Minister Yang will explain China's positions on these issues," Ma said without elaborating.

The MSC, formerly known as the Munich Conference on Security Policy, was founded in 1962 by German publisher Ewald-Heinrich von Kleist-Schmenzin. The annual Munich forum has become one of the most important meetings, focusing on major thorny issues facing the world toda.
