The message reads, in part:
“The Academy enjoys well-deserved recognition in our nation and beyond its borders as a multidisciplinary centre for higher education and research activity. Its graduates work successfully in a wide range of sectors, holding important and highly-responsible positions in government service and the private sector, in the media and research institutions. The teaching staff is known for its high level of professionalism, unique combination of practical diplomatic experience and thorough theoretical knowledge.
I am confident that the Diplomatic Academy staff will continue to make a significant input into training highly qualified international relations professionals that can deftly protect Russia’s national interests and promote our foreign policy priorities. This is particularly important given the dynamic, complex, often unpredictable developments in the world.”
