The sentences:

Today, there is no modern governmant which does not pride itself on its interest in scientific and technological matters. There are only a few among the advanced countries, which do not have achievements to boast about.

Why is there a comma there? Is that comma really necessary? IMO, it's not. In fact, to me it even seems like a wrong usage.

What do you think, teachers?
