UNESCO Director General Irina BokovaUNESCO is an organisation whose activity isn’t laden with political implications. Probably, this is the reason why interaction with Belarus is very rich. This year is the jubilee of our membership of the organization — 60 years — but this also refers to all former republics of the USSR. UNESCO Director General, Irina Bokova, timed her trip in order to mark this anniversary in the jubilee-countries, starting with Minsk. During her meeting with the President, the guests discussed the prospect of further co-operation between our country and UNESCO.
Irina Bokova comes from Bulgaria, and at the beginning of the meeting the President paid special attention to this fact. Belarus and Bulgaria have been connected by warm friendly relations since the Soviet time. Of course, the guest, as a contemporary European functionary, may have her own attitude towards these pages of history but they definitely were present. Moreover, in the present days, Belarusians are keen to visit the Golden Sands, Sunny Beach, Nessebar and Sozopol. Therefore, communication with representatives of Bulgaria brings only pleasure, and we understand each other well.
UNESCO’s major statutory tasks include collaboration between the states aiming to ensure security via science, education and culture. Mr. Lukashenko noted the importance of these goals, stating that this is what can promote harmony but not on the contrary. Of course, it would be interesting and useful to the head of the organisation to attend the country which spends 5 percent of its GDP on education. Moreover, our country also attaches a great significance to science. As far as cultural heritage is concerned, it’s a pity Ms. Bokova didn’t arrive in our country earlier, when the President saw the recreated production of Slutsk belts. Meanwhile, anyone wishing can come here at any moment, as well as in any other place. It is important for Belarusians to keep the memory of our history.
In total, we see good prospects in further Belarus-UNESCO interaction. “You will always be able to count on us in the organisation — we will always support your initiatives. Moreover, these initiatives are essential and advantageous not only for Belarus, but for the all mankind,” the President assured his guest.
Ms. Bokova welcomed these words, and during the conversation shared her impressions from the meeting with our students. She noted that they aren’t only aware but take an active interest in the issues of the preservation of tangible and intangible heritage. The guest made the conclusion, “If young people know their history and are confident about their national identity, they will be more tolerant towards other nations. They will feel more secure and will be better able to address contemporary challenges.”
This is an outside point of view which confirms the correctness of the landmarks which we have put before us while restoring the relics, and explaining why we need this to the younger generation. It’s seen that these seeds have fallen on fertile soil.
