Moscow: Praising the Sultanate as one of the most stable countries in the region, Russian academician Dr. Galina Olegovna, who specialises in Arab world affairs has expressed the desire for cementing educational ties between the two countries.

She made the statement in her speech during a celebration organised by the Russian University of the Friendship of Nations (The Peoples' Friendship University of Russia) on the occasion of its 60th anniversary since inception.
