PARIS, November 6 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) agreed to expand cooperation in education, Russian Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov said.

At the meeting with his colleagues from Brazil, India, China and South Africa on the sidelines of the 37th UNESCO General Conference, Livanov said: “Despite the fact that our countries have different education systems we have common goals.”

He told Itar-Tass, “This is conditioned by the common economic models in the BRICS countries that is why we agreed to expand cooperation in education at all levels.”

“We want diplomas be recognised and academic mobility be expanded in order to ease administrative barriers for schoolchildren, students and professors and intensify education exchanges,” the Russian minister said, adding that a working group would function permanently.

“BRICS education ministers will meet regularly ahead of the BRICS summits to make up the agenda,” he said.

The first meeting within such format will take place in Brazil in 2014. The ministers will gather in Russia in 2015.
