The main issues discussed were the developments concerning nuclear weapons and factories, as well as the latest findings on the use of prohibited weapons containing depleted uranium (see the case of Yugoslavia during the attack of NATO in 1999), the reconciliation after the war of Yugoslavia and the Ukrainian crisis as a threat of nuclear war.
