Higher Education Minister Brian Mushimba says government is committed to ensure quality education is accessible by all Zambians.
Dr Mushimba says this is because education opens opportunities to national development.
The Minster was speaking when he received one hundred and 38 student scholarships to study in Russia in Lusaka today.
He said Zambia has already benefited from the skills from Zambians that have already studied in Russia.
And Russian Ambassador Alexander Boldyrev said among the programs will include nuclear sciences which will be beneficial for Zambia as it is looking to developing nuclear energy.
