On September 30, the Altai State University hosted the II International Altaistic Forum "The Turkic-Mongolian World of the Greater Altai: Historical and Cultural Heritage and Modernity".

Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Andrei Belyaninov, in his welcoming speech to the forum participants, emphasized:

“Altai’s importance, Altai culture as the center of several civilizations in the history of mankind, of course, must be given a worthy assessment. We do not yet fully understand what Altai means for all mankind, for the history of our entire planet. Such a number of peoples, such a number of cultures left Altai and spread all over the world that it is necessary to collect bit by bit the knowledge about these processes. The forum has a very noble task, and I am sure that it will go successfully."

Recall, on April 22, the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, together with the Committee of the State Duma of the Russian Federation for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots, held a round table "The Age of Eurasia: Conscious Partnership of Peoples" dedicated to Altai civilization.

The main task of the forum is to create conditions for full-fledged scientific communication and uniting scientists from Central Asian countries in joint educational and scientific projects, since today there is a steady interest and desire of the peoples of Eurasia for integration, for the restoration of lost cultural, business, scientific and human ties.
