PARIS, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Head of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov on Tuesday signed an agreement on the strengthening of cooperation of the republic with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). He is in Paris on a working visit.
“We are ready to continue to promote the UNESCO ideals also in the future,” said Khamitov. Together with the UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova he opened an exhibition of Bashkortostan’s cultural heritage.
This year marks 15 years since the beginning of cooperation between UNESCO and Ufa. Representatives of the republic are involved in the projects: “National education: from infancy to high school” and Inclusive Education. A network of UNESCO Associated Schools is developing in the republic. One of the three Russian schools that implement the international pilot project “School of the Future” is located in Bashkortostan.

Feodor Chaliapin and Rudolf Nureyev started their creative career in Ufa.
