The first-ever meeting of the ministers of culture of the Arctic Council nations is currently under way at Khanty-Mansiisk. Itar-Tass was told at the press service of the governor of the Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous Area of Siberia that the conference was concentrating its main attention on “Arctic partnership as the foundation for safeguarding the traditional cultures of the northern peoples” and adducing the Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous Area as an example of this work. It will also discuss problems of rallying together the cultural leaders of the Arctic region in order to be able to implement joint projects and to draw up systems for financing them, to promote broad cooperation among the Arctic countries. It is planned to discuss the experience of the Arctic Council nations in safeguarding the traditional and contemporary cultures of the northern peoples as a factor of stable development. The conference is to end on January 18, press service officials said. The initiative to hold in the Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous Area a conference on cultural cooperation among the Arctic Council nations came from the Ministry of Culture and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation. Alexander Sokolov, the Russian ministers of culture, said “there are very many examples of how cultural projects have been successfully implemented and they should be used as models in the other regions of Russia”. Russia is chairing the Arctic Council in 2004-2006. The priority task and particular concern of the Russian mission to the Council is to help ensure normal life to the population of the Russian North, to cope with the problems of the indigenous peoples.
