TALLINN, February 31 (Itar-Tass) - Mayor of Tallinn Edgar Savisaar and Moscow City Duma Speaker Vladimir Platonov, who arrived in Tallinn to confer awards upon the winners of the Yury Dolgoruky International Literature Fund's literature contest, agreed that it was necessary to bring the co-operation agreement between Estonia’s and Russia’s capitals up to date in order to expand academic contacts.
“The agreement on co-operation between our capitals was concluded twenty years ago and currently it needs to be supplemented with specific areas of co-operation in the sphere of culture,” Savisaar said, adding that he appreciated the level of co-operation between the cities and hoped for its further development.
Platonov said in his turn there were a number of events scheduled for 2014, designated as the Year of Culture in Russia, including some events abroad. He noted that Russian dancers and singers enjoyed touring the neighbouring country and highly appreciated the exquisite taste of the Estonian audience.
