MOSCOW, October 28 /TASS/. Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State and Nobel Peace Prize winner, has been elected to the Russian Academy of Sciences along with another six Nobel Prize winners, Academician Boris Chetverushkin said on Friday.
"Kissinger, Henry Alfred," Chetverushkin said as he read the names of the newly elected members of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Kissinger received his academic title for his study of global problems.
Other Nobel Prize winners elected to the Russian Academy of Sciences include Serge Haroche and Martinus Veltman (physics); Roger D. Kornberg, Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Dan Shechtman (chemistry); Kenneth J. Arrow (economy).
Kissinger, 93, is one of the authors of the policy of ‘d·tente" in the US-Soviet relations. In 1973, he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in negotiating and reaching the Paris Peace Accord intended to end the war in Vietnam.
Upon resigning from big politics, Kissinger focused on writing memoirs, articles and books on foreign policy and diplomacy. His most famous works include "Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy"; "The White House Years" and "Does America Need a Foreign Policy?"
Kissinger has many US state awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest US civilian decoration, awarded to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
