“In the year of the PIR Center 25th anniversary, we note that this is the most experienced Russian non-governmental expert organization in the field of international security that remains a unique and valuable tool of Russian public diplomacy. The acronym “PIR” is known all over the world and there is no need to explain what stands for it. The demand for its expert assessments, applied research and educational programs is beyond doubt. We fully support and endorse the actions of the Founder & Director of PIR Center Vladimir Orlov aimed at optimizing the organization’s structure and elaborating systemic steps to develop the PIR Center and the entire PIR Community”, – statement by the PIR Center’s Executive Board.

“China shows no signs at all of being ready to join the process. Of course, that could change over time. In fact, it would also be in Russia’s best interests if not just China but also France and Britain were to join in, though neither country seems to have much to say on the matter for the time being. If we choose to pursue this scenario, we should be aware that any meaningful progress would take years to achieve. Meanwhile, we are facing some urgent tasks that cannot wait. And that is why Russia and the United States should continue to work as a duo, until such time when the duo can become a trio or, even better, a quintet.”, – Director of PIR Center Vladimir Orlov.
