Mr. Gorbachev said the world still counters countless challenges including economic, environmental, and military. He insisted the students to never deject and have faith in their leadership skills.
He said: “I think that this is a plan that he’s very close to fulfilling. But, to be perfectly honest, I think that we also have to bear in mind that opinion polls show that his authority and his support have gone down somewhat. I think that within the next few weeks and months things will become clearer. I think the parliamentary election campaign will make things clearer.”
On U.S. President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, Gorbachev said: “I noted the statement by President Obama. He said that he definitely will run but he is not 100 per cent sure that he will win. I was a little surprised that he said that. My own impression is that he has shown his ability and I think that the American people could give him their trust for a second term. But it’s for the American people to decide.”
