MOSCOW, April 21, /ITAR-TASS/. Cooperation with Russia is vital for UNESCO, its Secretary-General Irina Bokova said on Monday, April 21.
Russia is leading the way in advancing education, she said at a meeting marking the 60th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s accession to UNESCO and recalled the first international conference on school education held in Moscow in 2010.
UNESCO and Russia also cooperate in preserving natural and historical heritage, as well as in a wide range of other areas from nanotechnology to Lake Baikal.
This U.N. body supports Russia’s Hermitage and its cultural heritage is of special importance for the Russian people as it includes the works of Russian thinkers, writers, artists and composers, Bokova said.
