For this purpose, it is very important to quickly implement the “Agreements on cooperation in the field of culture and education”, which are developed and submitted to the authorities of your country. With your support, we look forward to deepening our cooperation with Canada in the field of education and culture, accelerating the process of concluding these agreements. About three months ago, we hosted Senate President George Frey and his delegation at the Department of National Education. I spoke with him about the importance of moving our relations to the level of agreements. Mr. President also stated that he was of the same opinion and that they would work to expedite the process. If we make progress on these issues, we will have a legal basis to strengthen our relationship.”
