Magomedsalam Magomedov read out Vladimir Putin’s message of greetings to the participants and guests of the Assembly. The message reads, in part: “You are sincerely involved in Russia’s destiny, desire its prosperity and work for its future. Your tireless aspiration to play a part in resolving big national tasks deserves the greatest recognition and respect. Your solidarity and powerful synergy most certainly help to strengthen our country’s authority in the world.”
In his remarks, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office noted the substantial contribution made by the participants in the Assembly to developing international humanitarian cooperation, promoting Russian culture and shaping a positive image of our country abroad.
“Today, like never before, there is high, universal interest in preserving peace in the world, developing intercultural dialogue and ensuring consensus on the key issues of the global world order. The potential of people-to-people diplomacy that is being successfully used in the framework of the Assembly’s work, without doubt, should be used to this end,” Mr Magomedov stressed.
Magomedsalam Magomedov also noted the key role played by the Russian people and the Russian language in state ethnic policy, stressing that these issues are a subject of special attention by the Presidential Council for Interethnic Relations and the Council on the Russian Language.
“Unity in diversity is the foundation of the Russian World, which provides for preserving the identity of all peoples and nationalities with the leading role of the Russian language as a means of interethnic cooperation,” Magomedsalam Magomedov said.
