September 12 2009

On September 14, Yaroslavl, will host an international conference "Current state and global security." Its main theme is the question of how to be a modern state, it must develop and act to make the world a safer and more stable. The agenda of the conference will include four thematic sections. With the head of one of them, co-chair the National Strategy Council, a member of the Public Chamber of Russia Iosif Diskin spoke correspondent

Iosif Diskin is a moderator of the section "Current state against terrorism, separatism and xenophobia", whose participants, as was stated earlier, will try during the discussion to develop common principles and understanding of issues in the fight against separatism, terrorism and xenophobia. In particular, already talked in detail about the presentation of this section in Moscow . Today, as before the start of the conference were just a few days, Joseph E. outlined some points that seem a number of experts disputed, and that for him personally, this means the international conference and what to expect on its results.

- How important to you seems to participate in the conference of foreign experts, what is the purpose of their invitation. Would you agree with the opinion that the era of "smart tourists" is over?

- From my point of view - it is extremely important because the objective of the conference is to promote to the development of international standards, a comparison of positions. Therefore, the invitation of the leading intellectuals of the West allows us to compare our positions and make the Russian discourse in the global context. So that they could not intellectual tourists, and people who lead an active dialogue with the Russian experts.

- On the eve of the conference, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, under whose auspices, and this international forum held in Yaroslavl, an article, "Russia!" Which has already been called the program. In your opinion, coincide with the conference theme sounded by President of the thesis? And continued: can Yaroslav conference to influence the content of future letters to the Federal Assembly?

- We must understand that after all the agenda to be a little different - it is directed inwards. Although, of course, fundamental things intersect. For example, the president suggested that Russian democracy is specific, but fit into the general standards - and this idea will be discussed in detail during the Conference Yaroslavl. The President also pointed out that the problem of the Caucasus - instability - a sick problem of Russia, and the issue of combating terrorism, separatism and xenophobia will be discussed in that section, which I am a moderator.

Of course, that the president will hear during the conference, to be adjusted to a certain extent its position with regard to the message (annual address of President of the Russian Federation Federal Assembly. -, although it has set itself other tasks. Just a different format, objectives and themes.

- What results do you expect from the conference? What conclusions will be drawn, followed by a practical implementation developed from the discussion of solutions?

- From my point of view, the problem is different - to convince our partners that it is necessary that this agenda is relevant, that holding the conference in Russia, the restoration forum, which will be systematically carried out such a dialogue is extremely important and productive. This is a major problem for the first conference.

In regard to practical implications - it is not an interstate forum, although in Yaroslavl will discuss inter-state problems. The aim is to establish dialogue and develop a common understanding.
