Head of the Representation of the Assembly in the Republic of Bashkortostan (Russia), First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Bashkortostan Andrey Nazarov greeted the participants of the Expanded meeting of the General Council Presidium of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly in Sevastopol.
Dmitry Trapeznikov, Executive Secretary of the Representative Office, read out the greeting:
“Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly has established itself as one of the largest and most socially significant organizations at the international level. The Assembly makes an invaluable contribution to strengthening good-neighborly and trusting relations between the numerous peoples of the Eurasian continent, promotes the formation of a broad intercultural dialogue, and draws the attention of the world community to the importance of humanitarian cooperation.
The scale of the Assembly is also demonstrated by the status of its participants, who are present today at the Expanded meeting of the General Council Presidium. I am sure that together we will realize many interesting projects and ideas at the highest level and with real results for the benefit of strengthening peace, harmony and good relations between the countries of the Eurasian continent.
The Representation of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly in the Republic of Bashkortostan is always ready to share its best practices and experience with colleagues. We appreciate the support of the leadership and the General Secretariat of the Assembly in all our endeavours.
In turn, I invite you, dear participants of the Extended meeting of the General Council Presidium, to take part in the largest international festival of traditional culture – the World Folklore Festival. It will be held in the Republic of Bashkortostan in 2021. Traditional culture and folklore are the most effective means of “soft diplomacy”. And we use this international festival 100 percent to strengthen peace and mutual understanding between countries and peoples.”
