Under the Foreign Minister Order an Expert Council affiliated with the Ministry was found. Scientists, political experts, analytical experts, social activists can participate in work of the Council. There will be permanent members (citizens of the Republic) and external experts (including citizens of other states), who would be invited depending on subject of a certain meeting.


The idea of creating such a council appeared due to the necessity of having a permanent forum for exchanging opinions. Economists, scientists, political experts would get opportunity to have their say on current issues of foreign policy. We believe expert opinions would be of great use in achieving foreign policy objectives.
