Yegor Borisov received the director of the Institute of the North of the city of Anchorage Niels Andreassen

The head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Yegor Borisov received the director of the Anchorage Institute of the North (Alaska, USA) Nils Andreassen, who took part in the international scientific and practical conference "The Arctic: Prospects for Sustainable Development" in the city of Yakutsk.

According to the tradition, Yegor Afanasyevich told the guest about Yakutia, its geographical and climatic features, social and economic situation - according to Yegor Borisov's website.

Egor Borisov dwelled on the activities of the non-governmental organization Northern Forum, where the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is currently the presiding region. He highly appreciated the organization’s contribution to the consolidation of peace and the development of the Arctic territories and expressed the hope that in the near future the composition of the Northern Forum will expand, including at the expense of the regions that had previously suspended its membership.

Nils Andreassen thanked Yegor Borisov for his hospitality and the opportunity to visit the Yakut land for the first time, spoke about the life of the state of Alaska, pointing out many similarities with Yakutia. The American colleague declared his institute’s interest in establishing further cooperation with scientific organizations of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

Towards the end of the conversation, the parties came to the mutual conclusion that, despite the difficult political situation in the world, it is necessary to build a partnership format of relations in humanitarian areas, primarily in protecting the interests of the indigenous minorities of the North and solving environmental problems in the Arctic.

During the meeting, Egor Borisov, in the presence of Niels Andreassen, signed a welcoming address with congratulations and wishes of success to the newly elected Alaska Governor Bill Walker.
