MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - Arab Spring may last through to 2030, believes Shamil Sultanov, the president of the Russian-Islamic World Center for Strategic Research.
He said it Wednesday at a news conference.
“One of the distinctive marks of a revolution that’s coming to an end is a status of affair where a return to the old situations and patterns becomes impossible.
As for the situation in the Middle East and North Africa, its evolution may be over gradually within a period of several decades.
“It is precisely in the Arab world of this kind that the rejuvenation of the Islamic civilization will take place,” Sultanov said.
