MEXICO CITY, October 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian compatriots in Mexico come out for strengthening ties with their historical native land. Participants in the 6th conference of the Association of Russian Compatriots (ARC) said this here last Friday.
Delegates of communities from 18 Mexican states, as well as staffers of the Russian embassy and the local mission of Rossotrudnichestvo attended the event.
As Chairman of the ARC Coordination Council Sergei Kilyakov noted, the conference is of unifying character, since one of its aims is to establish ties with new groups of compatriots permanently living in different regions of Mexico.
The participants in the conference stressed “the necessity of preserving the traditions of the historical native land, learning the Russian language by children, holding cultural events.” The initiative to expand cooperation with the fund Russian World was also put forward.
On the results of the conference, the composition of the ARC Coordination Council was elected. Kilyakov was re-elected to the post of chairman of the council. Seventeen regional branches of the association were also established. The delegates adopted the final resolution which expressed, in particular, support of the Russian leadership’s policy aimed to expand ties of compatriots abroad amd protect their rights and interests.
