    Former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev said that the world should be engaged in constructive politics in order to reach the peace and to strengthen it.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The world should be engaged in constructive politics in order to reach the peace and to strengthen it, Former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev said.

    "I think that we are now in a dangerous period [of time]… It is necessary only to be engaged in the world politics, constructive politics. And to move toward peace. To organize this peace and to strengthen it," Gorbachev said Sunday in an interview with Russia's Ren-TV channel.

    He added that all the tensions and the conflicts had always resulted in peace, because the nature of the humanity implied the necessity to save itself.

    Gorbachev was the first and last president of the Soviet Union. He announced his resignation in December 1991. In 1990, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his "leading role in the peace process which today characterizes important parts of the international community."
