Postponement of a visit to Expo 2010 Shanghai China by a group of Japanese youths
September 20, 2010
- On the night of September 19, the All-China Youth Federation, the Chinese host organization, notified the Japanese Embassy in Beijing, that it will postpone the reception of a planned visit to Expo 2010 Shanghai China by a group of 1,000 Japanese youths from September 21 (Tues) to 24 (Fri). The Federation expressed that carrying out such a friendship exchange program under the current climate is not appropriate.
- Since youth exchanges programs including this planned visit are significant for building the foundation for stable Japanese-Chinese relations, it is extremely inappropriate and regrettable that the Chinese side made the decision just before the planned visit. The Government of Japan conveyed the position to the Chinese side through the Japanese Embassy.
