Once again, I would like to express my gratitude to our Syrian colleagues, who are always open to dialogue, and wish us all, first of all, good health, successful work for our forum, and express confidence in the success of further scientific and educational cooperation between Russia and Syria," said Elena Kataeva, rector of STANKIN.
