The Russian language version of a Chinese modern poetry collection was officially launched Friday.

Chinese ambassador to Russia Li Hui, president of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship With Foreign Countries and of China-Russia Friendship Association (CRFA) Chen Haosu, and president of Russia-China Friendship Association (RCFA) Mikhail Titarenko attended the launch at the Far-East Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

They all applauded the new book, featuring the unique charisma of Chinese poetry, hailing poetry-writing as an important component of both Chinese and Russian cultures, each of which enjoyed a long history and rich tradition.

As a major event within the framework of Chinese Language Year in Russia this year, they said the launch of the new book could effectively boost bilateral cultural cooperation and the enhancement of mutual friendship and understanding between China and Russia.

The new Chinese poetry collection has 60 poems by 30 Chinese poets from different times over the past century, demonstrating the perseverance of Chinese people in their pursuit of freedom, a bright future, love, as well as their aspiration for building a harmonious society and a life full of happiness.

After the launch, Chen and Titarenko also signed a cooperative program for 2010-2011 between CRFA and RCFA.
