The delegation of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly takes part in the work of the International Scientific Conference "Primakov's Readings", for the first time held in Sofia (Bulgaria). The theme of the readings is "Political leadership in a multipolar world." The representative international forum is attended by Bulgarian and Russian scientists, politicians and public figures.

Members of the Assembly delegation: First Deputy Secretary General - Head of the General Secretariat of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Svetlana Smirnova, Member of the Presidium of the General Council of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, Ambassador Goodwill of UNESCO Alexandra Ochirova, co-chair of the Youth Assembly of the Eurasian Peoples (Bulgaria) Vadim Roshmanov, Deputy Head of the General Secretariat of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly for International Cooperation Yulia Petrova, members of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Svetlana Tagieva and Dmitry Nersesyan.

"Organizers of the international conference chose an extremely important topic - the need for effective leadership and the establishment of a multipolar world. At present, not a single problem of mankind can be solved by one side. The survival of mankind depends on cooperation, on integration projects between centers of influence. I hope that the new leaders will determine new directions for the development of mankind and we will follow a peaceful path, because the current path of conflicts and confrontations leads to a dead end,” Deputy Chairman of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Bulgaria Christian Vigenin said at the opening of the forum.

President of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Dynkin noted that Bulgaria has become the second country where the Primakov Readings are held. “Our platform has already received worldwide recognition as a place for a sharp and frank exchange of views, and Bulgaria has become the second country where this forum is held, before that it was held in Yerevan,” he said.

Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria Anatoly Makarov expressed hope that "the holding of the Primakov Readings in Sofia will become a good tradition."

In the next two days, Russian and Bulgarian experts will present reports on modern challenges, leadership in a multipolar world, the threats of digital wars and other topical issues.
