*The Slavic Research Center is pleased to announce the publication of A 4,000 Kilometer Journey Along the Sino-Russian Border by Iwashita Akihiro, a Professor of the SRC. The Sino-Russian border issue is clearly focused by a "historic triumph" for final resolution of the remaining territorial problem, which President Putin and Hu Jintao declared at the latest summit on Oct. 14, 2004. This publication is useful and advantageous for acquiring the information on the Sino-Russian border issue. In this publication, Professor Iwashita paints a comprehensive picture of Sino-Russian negotiations over the 4,300 kilometer eastern border, including territorial and migration problems, particularly in the ten years following the Cold War. He examines not only Moscow-Beijing diplomatic formations on "strategic partnership" but also details Russian Far East and Trans-Baikal -Chinese Northeast (Dongbei) regional relations that had an impact on Sino-Russian relations as a whole.
Factually, considerable attention has been paid to Sino-Russian relations, but little is known about the Sino-Russian border demarcation process and the border itself. He also tells the full story of the Sino-Russian border zone: the myth of Damanskii Island, the truth of "Chinese expansion" on Bol'shoi Ussuriiskii Island, the troubles of the Sino-Russian-Korean triangular border point, and the unknown "island exchanges" on the rivers used to "successfully" resolve the territorial problems in the late 1990s. Without knowledge of the challenges and realities on the Sino-Russian border zone, talking about the future relationship between Russia and China would be impossible.
