We welcome public diplomacy initiatives that promote a culture and values of equitable, mutually beneficial partnership in international affairs. In the past few years the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs took a number of practical steps to facilitate productive foreign policy dialogue between government agencies and NGOs. I am referring to the formation of the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund and the Russian International Affairs Council.
