Eduard Shevardnadze (ედუარდ შევარდნაძე), 25 January 1928 – 7 July 2014


Eduard Shevardnadze (ედუარდ შევარდნაძე)
25 January 1928 – 7 July 2014

Former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1991 and President of Georgia from 1992 to 2003 understood the value of international educational and cultural exchanges.

It's facinating to read about how "General Agreement on Contacts, Exchanges, and Cooperation in Scientific, Technical, Educational, Cultural, and Other Fields" between the United States and the Soviet Union [one of smaller outcomes of the Geneva Summit in November 1985] came about:

"Pact on Exchanges: 200-Hour Wrangle" via The New York Times, November 27, 1985

"General Agreement on Contacts, Exchanges, and Cooperation in Scientific, Technical, Educational, Cultural, and Other Fields" between the United States and the Soviet Union
