KAZAN, 5 Sep — RIA Novosti. Coexistence of representatives of the different people, cultures and faiths is the force and possibilities of Russia and an example in universal space, the First Deputy Chief of the Russian President's Executive Office Sergey Kiriyenko at opening of the Kazan forum of UNESCO has said. Kiriyenko on Wednesday takes part in opening of the Kazan forum of UNESCO on cross-cultural dialogue under the auspices of the state councilor of Tatarstan, the special envoy of UNESCO on cross-cultural dialogue Mintimer Shaimiev. Special envoys of UNESCO, goodwill ambassadors, experts in the field of preservation of interethnic and interfaith concord, representatives of federal, republican authorities, clergy, scientists and the cultures of Russia discuss new forms of the international cooperation in the humanitarian sphere. "Already several centuries Tatarstan are a model of peaceful co-existence of representatives of the different people and different faiths not only in the Russian Federation, but also in universal space. If in separate points of our planet such neighbourhood sometimes becomes the reason of the conflicts and even tragic collisions, then in Tatarstan and in Russia in general, we see absolutely other example" — Kiriyenko has told. According to him, it is a question of basic values, the basic relation. "And here, in Tatarstan, and in general in Russia we always proceeded and we recognize that what we different, different nationalities, different religion is not a problem, and is not our weakness, on the contrary, it is our force, it is our opportunity" — he has emphasized. According to the first deputy administrator of the Russian President Administration, cross-cultural dialogue is, apparently, dialogue about distinctions, but the traditions of the people are more and more deeply studied, the understanding is stronger that the general between them it is much bigger, than distinctions. "Unless there are such traditions, such cultures in which values of good, compassion, mutual aid wouldn't be main? If such cultures also existed, then they have very quickly disappeared, history itself has rendered to them the verdict" — he has told. Read other news of the region here>>
