MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Russian Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov and French ambassador to Russia Jean-Maurice Ripert have signed a treaty on mutual recognition of education, qualification and academic degrees, the ministry press service said on Monday.
"Academic societies from both countries were looking forward to this agreement, which is entirely important for bilateral relations," Livanov said. "Peculiarities in the educational systems of the two states have been taken into account," he added.
Diplomas and upper education levels from secondary education to higher university-degree candidates are now equally recognised in Russia and France. Students from both countries will have same conditions to enter Russian or French universities with all the administrative barriers removed.
"Russian-French partnership is mutually important," Ripert said. "French universities welcome more than 2,000 Russian students every year and we are striving to make this number grow," he added.
Another bilateral agreement for mutual development of Russian-French research projects and financing was also signed.
