Primakov readings - Planetary Project Outlook

Executive Director of the Planetary Development Institute


On November 30, Vladimir Putin attended the Primakov Readings International Forum, which were held to study the academic and political legacy of Yevgeny Primakov. The agenda included speeches by Russian and foreign politicians, academics and public figures who knew Mr Primakov.

Yevgeny Primakov had predicted a world which would be multi polar. Where the role of Arab world will be very important. Besides this, a pivotal role will be on Russia, China & India. Today we see that all what is happening in Arab world is reflecting on the world peace, safety & security. Every time when its neglected, the threat becomes horrifying. Without managed harmony the world will go nowhere.

Today Mr Xavier Salan (with NATO fame) talked about role of Russia and need of dialogue between Europe and Russia, as Russia is a big part of Europe. Planetary project talked about this for a long time, just like Yevgeny Primakov.

The Primakov Readings International Forum was held at the Congress Centre of Moscow’s World Trade Centre with support from the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Primakov National Research Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IMEMO).

Planetary project wishes to hold such a conference in near future in the Middle East. A region which was always very near to the heart and mind of Yevgeny Primakov. (Yevgeny Maximovich, as his friends and students used to call him).

Yevgeny Primakov was a politician, public figure and diplomat. He was one of Russia’s leading experts in oriental studies and a prominent scholar in the fields of the global economy and international relations. Mr Primakov was Prime Minister (1998–1999), Foreign Minister (1996–1998) and Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service (1991–1996).

The need of managed harmony was so evident today during the Yevgeny Primakov Readings forum, that the whole idea of our project seems very realistic & let no theoretical philosophers think that all what our project is talking about is just a theory. It's the need of the hour & every where when it's implemented, we see peace, growth and prosperity.
