MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The West’s zealous policy of "compulsory globalization" has generated a natural resistance in some countries including the US, Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service Director Sergei Naryshkin said at the Primakov Readings international conference in Moscow. He pointed out that a candidate encouraging the public to cherish national traditions had won the recent US presidential election.
Naryshkin also said that a while ago many swore by an unshakable unipolar world forever, but now the number of countries guided by their national interests, has started to grow. "Without a doubt, countries will continue to move closer to each other in order to tackle global issues since the attempts to advance the so-called compulsory globalization, involving the western elites’ zeal to unify not only science and technology, production and marketing of products, but also social institutions, lifestyles, culture and spiritual matters of each and every civilization, have encountered natural resistance in many countries," he added. According to Naryshkin, "people have responded by defending their traditional values including national identity, reverence for their history as well as their ancestors’ faith."
"This trend became clear during the recent US presidential election, when the balance between globalization and national identity took center stage. A candidate urging the public to cherish national traditions carefully and to return to the concept of the American dream, won the election," Naryshkin concluded.
