      Russian conference underway in Beijing

      BEIJING, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- An international "Russian Culture"
      conference underway in Beijing deals with the national character and
      philosophical origins of the country.

      The conference, which also includes discussions on orthodoxy in
      Russian history and the relationship between Russia and China,
      involves more than 100 Russian and Chinese teachers, students and
      scientists at Beijing Pedagogical University, Itar-Tass reported
      Tuesday. (http://www.tass.ru/eng/level2.html?NewsID=11116863&PageNum=0)

      "Now dozens and hundreds of thousands of Chinese and Russians are
      involved in contacts, which are acquiring an ever more civilized
      character," said Li Yingnan, director of the Russian Language Center
      of the Beijing University of Foreign Languages.

      Participants expressed hope that the conference would build stronger
      ties between the two countries.

      "Growing migration of people, cultural exchanges between Russia and
      China require the formation of culture of interethnic intercourse,
      overcoming of negative directions, stereotypes and prejudices," said
      Anatoly Dmitriyev, a Russian sociologist and corresponding member of
      the Russian Academy of Sciences.
