Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled the Primorsky Aquarium during the Eastern Economic Forum in Russki Island, Saturday, together with South Korea President Park Geun-hye and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "Here, by the Pacific Ocean, Japanese and Eastern Seas, the conditions are no worse than in Mediterranean Sea, maybe even better, in terms of biological diversity. So, step by step, we got the idea to build the seaquarium not only as a commercial object but also as a centre that can combine scientific research, education, and awareness. What we see here and what the visitors will see, is only one part of what has been done, I will say it again that the second part is education and science. Here, there are other buildings, containers with animals for further research. People who come in this representational building can get acquainted with diverse sea biology and with the newest theories of the origin of our planet."
SOT, Park Geun-hye, President of South Korea (Korean): "I hope Primorsky Aquarium develops as a centre for sea biology preservation, sea culture, and tourism. [TRANSLATION] Thank you very much."
SOT, Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan (Japanese): "I congratulate you with the opening of the first seaquarium. Let me express my hope that because of President Putin's help, this seaquarium will be outstanding."
