Meantime, the Ural Federal University celebrated the anniversary of the League of Arab States. The Ural Association of Young Middle Easterners acted as an organizer and modelled the work of an international round table. During the experiment, the participants discussed such topics as security, resolution of the current crisis and the future development of the region.
