MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. The concept of "people’s diplomacy" has enriched itself and became broader in recent years, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday. She was speaking at the forum titled "The Role of People’s Diplomacy in the Development of International Humanitarian Cooperation" dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Rossotrudnichestvo (the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation).
"This stems from the fact that the very classic diplomacy has become more understandable and more accessible," she said. "This is, to a great extent, thanks to our compatriots who maintain such ties with our country abroad."
Zakharova noted that an important role was allotted to digital diplomacy. "This is an opportunity to instantly communicate with a person in any country across the globe, no matter where he is," she said. "Hundreds of thousands of people who have never been to Russia learned a great deal about our country thanks to digital diplomacy."
