The message reads, in part:
“Over the years of its existence, the ICAPP has fully proven its effectiveness and relevance while ensuring constructive interaction between the parties of the Asian continent and provided a great venue for discussing important matters of international politics and economics, and interparliamentary and cultural cooperation.
Russia welcomes the ICAPP’s efforts to identify approaches to the peaceful settlement of regional conflicts and crises, to consolidate the principles of justice, equality and mutual respect in international relations. The leading political force in our country – the United Russia party – is making a significant contribution to the conference’s activities, including as a member of its Standing Committee.
I am convinced that in the course of the upcoming discussions you will exchange practical experience in party work and will outline new joint projects and initiatives to help strengthen trust and understanding between the peoples of different countries.”
