Russia intends to do everything possible to ensure the same success of the Year of China in Russia as of the Year of Russia in China
Russia intends to do everything possible to ensure the same success of the Year of China in Russia as of the Year of Russia in China, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an exclusive interview published by the Renmin Ribao daily on Thursday. “We firmly intend to do our utmost to hold the Year of China in Russia with the same success as our country’s Year in China,” Medvedev stated. The official noted that “in accordance with the existing agreement and taking into account a similar step of our Chinese partners last year we have forwarded to the Chinese side our proposals on the Year of China in Russia.” “Besides, I’ve set the task before the heads of the Russian parts of bilateral sub-commissions and working groups functioning within the framework of the mechanism of regular meetings of the heads of government to discuss this scheme with the Chinese colleagues at meetings of this bodies,” the first deputy prime minister stressed. “We are ready in a most detailed way to share with the Chinese friends our experience in the Year of Russia in China events organisation,” Medvedev indicated. The official said Russian ministries, departments and organisations are actively working on the proposals on the events of the Year of China in Russia put forward by the Chinese partners. “We have no doubt that the programme of the Year of China will also be very diverse, bright and the Russians will be able to learn many new things about contemporary China and to deeper understand the many centuries-old Chinese culture,” the first deputy prime minister pointed out. “We hope,” he added, “that the Chinese participants will be able to feature China not only in large cities, but also in Russian regions, particularly remote from your country.” “The Russians have the possibility to keep abreast of the events held within the framework of the Year of Russia and are following with interest all the activities. Taking into account that 2006 is the Year of Russia in China it is also very important to know about the attitude of ordinary citizens to the held events. Our diplomats working in China and Chinese colleagues say that the majority of Chinese citizens are quite positively disposed towards these actions. It is especially felt in provinces bordering on Russia that even without that have traditionally close and diverse contacts with our country,” Medvedev said. “It is quite gratifying that the programme of the Year of Russia embraces practically all Chinese regions and the emblem of the Year quite frequently appears as an integral attribute of that or other events,” the Russian first deputy prime minister pointed out. The official also said, “The role of the two countries’ mass media is indisputably important in informing both Russian and Chinese citizens.” “Russian mass media among which there are well-known news agencies Interfax, RIA Novosti and Itar-Tass are working in China with pleasure,” Medvedev said. “For instance, the Itar-Tass agency appears this year as the main information partner of the Year’s bright event - the Beijing-Moscow motor rally organised by Radio China International. The participants in this action have visited tens of Russian cities uninterruptedly transmitting for Chinese TV viewers, radio listeners and newspaper readers interesting reports featuring contemporary Russia,” the first deputy prime minister indicated. “At our meeting on August 29 with the Vice Premier of the Chinese State Council, my colleague - chairwoman of the Chinese Organising Committee for the Year of Russia, Ms. Wu Yi, we also discussed the role of mass media in the coverage of the events of the Year of Russia in China and forthcoming Year of China in Russia,” Medvedev noted. “Ms. Wu Yi separately noted the organisational and information support provided in our country to camera crews of the People’s Republic of China’s television working on reports within the framework of the Year,” the official said.
