This past week the Sheikh Zayed Book Award organised a seminar in Moscow in hand with the Institute of Orientalism of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Titled “Russian-Arab Cultural Dialogue” the seminar aimed to bring together Russian and Arab culture as part of a wider remit to bolster bilateral UAE-Russia relations.

Attended by the Emirates Ambassador to Russia, the Special Representative of the Russian President in the Middle East and North Africa, the Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Authority for the Arabic language, and the Secretary General of the Sheikh Zayed Award, among many other dignitaries.

Russia will be Guest of Honour at the 30th Abu Dhabi International Book Fair in April 2020, while the 2019 Moscow International Book Fair had Sharjah as its Guest City.
