MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russia offers its East Asia Summit /EAS/ partners to think about setting up a network university, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the 8th EAS summit in Brunei.
"India has proposed an interesting project based on reviving Nalanda University," the minister reminded. "As a follow-up of this idea to involve other higher education centers of regional countries, we might consider setting up an EAS network university."
"We already have such a network university functioning within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. It's a very useful project to establish direct contacts not only between research institutions, but also between people, youths," Lavrov said.
"If the idea to set up an EAS network university is supported, Russia is ready to engage the potential of the Far Eastern Federal University which hosted the APEC summit in 2012," the Russian diplomat added.
