SOUNDBITE:(Japanese) Osamu Fujimura, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary: "Prime Minister Medvedev's visit to Kunashiri Island this time runs counter to Japan's position on the four Northern islands, and it is extremely regrettable. It pours cold water on the efforts to create a positive environment between Japan and Russia. This is our view." 4. Wide of news conference 5. SOUNDBITE:(Japanese) Osamu Fujimura, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary: "Fundamental problems relating to the Northern Territories must be solved in order to avoid such visits in the future. For that, we are at a point in time where we need to tirelessly negotiate and solve the problem of the attribution of the islands, based on trust between the leaders of Japan and Russia." 6. Wide of news conference STORYLINE: Japan's top government spokesman Osamu Fujimura on Wednesday criticised Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's visit to the disputed Kuril Islands. Medvedev travelled on Tuesday to one of the four disputed islands, which are claimed by both Russia and Japan, and promised increased investment in the region. Speaking to reporters at a news conference on Wednesday, Fujimura said the visit was "extremely regrettable" and "runs counter to Japan's position". "It pours cold water on the efforts to create a positive environment between Japan and Russia," Fujimura said. Fujimura added that negotiations should continue between the two countries "based on trust between the leaders of Japan and Russia". In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Medvedev was visiting a part of Russian territory. He also said that their Japanese neighbours were aware of Moscow's policies in regard to the disputed islands. During his trip to the Sakhalin region, Medvedev said that Russia needed the Far Eastern territories, not just to oppose its enemies but also to attract investment. Medvedev pledged to allocate more government funding for the construction of fisheries and roads on the islands. Russia captured the Southern Kurils chain, that lie some 7,100 kilometres (4,400 miles) from Moscow, in 1945, but Japan still claims it as its own. The dispute for nearly seven decades has prevented Moscow and Tokyo from signing a peace treaty to formally end their hostilities. Surrounded by rich fishing waters, the islands are believed to have offshore hydrocarbon reserves, gold and silver deposits. After the 1991 Soviet collapse, the island chain suffered neglect and its population has plummeted. Many remaining residents took up poaching of fish and crustaceans that are then sold illegally to Japan, South Korea and China. Japan claims the Soviet troops took control of the islands illegally and has consistently called for their return as a precondition for fully improved ties.

Thousands of soldiers, veterans and other dignitaries gathered under overcast skies in Moscow, awaiting the start of the traditional Victory Day parade over the cobblestones of Red Square. More than 5,000 elite servicemen in crisp uniforms were scheduled to participate, marching in lockstep past President Vladimir Putin. Veterans, their chests covered in medals, poured into the capital for the ceremony. The May 9 Victory Day holiday continues to resonate here, a country that emerged devastated but triumphant from what Russians call the Great Patriotic War. The Soviet Union lost an estimated 27 million people in the war. On the eve of the celebrations, Russia''s Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov saluted Russia''s military and declared it as important today as it was 59 years ago. He said it was the lone guarantor of Russia''s security and its ability to meet its foreign policy goals. Parades were planned across Russia, and the Defense Ministry ordered 30-gun salutes to be fired in 15 cities at 10 p.m. local time in this nation of 11 time zones.

Wide of Gemba and Lavrov at news conference after meeting STORYLINE: Russia and Japan agreed on Saturday to hold frequent, high-level negotiations with the aim of settling a long-standing territorial dispute - although they remain far apart on how to achieve it. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met with Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi. The territorial dispute involves Japan's claim to four Russian-held islands, Etorofu, Kunashiri, Shikotan and the Habomai islet group, located off Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost main island. Lavrov and Gemba recognised that settling the territorial dispute is essential to boost cooperation between the two countries. The dispute has kept Russia and Japan from concluding a post-war peace treaty. The islands, known as the Northern Territories in Japan and as the Southern Kurils in Russia, were seized by the Soviet Union following Japan's surrender in World War II in 1945. Lavrov and Gemba also discussed the situation in Syria, as the country's government launched an offensive to retake rebel-held neighbourhoods in the nation's commercial hub of Aleppo. Lavrov on Saturday called the bloodshed in Aleppo a tragedy, but asked what else could the government do against the rebellion. Russia has been a key source of support for Syria, although Moscow officials in recent months have said they are simply taking a more even-handed approach while the West offers support to the rebels.

Wide of officials clapping, UPSOUND: applause 6. Mid (from left to right) of US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at conference on Syria STORYLINE UN-Arab League Special Envoy for Syria, Kofi Annan, on Saturday urged all parties in Syria to desist from violence and to implement a United Nations-brokered six-point peace plan to end the bloodshed in a country which many fear is rapidly sliding into civil war. Annan was speaking at the United Nations' European headquarters in Geneva after a day of talks with various foreign ministers and diplomats from the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (Britain, China, France, Russia and the US). The talks are seen as a last-ditch attempt to salvage the peace plan brokered by Annan. "The government and the armed opposition groups must cooperate with UNSMIS (United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria)," Annan stressed. He also ruled out military intervention. "The conflict must be resolved through peaceful dialogue and negotiations alone," he said, putting responsibility firmly at the door of the Syrian people. "It is for the people of Syria to come to a political agreement." Activists say over 14-thousand people have been killed in the uprising which began in March of last year. Russia and the United States - two permanent members of the Security Council - are currently at odds over Annan's peace plan which sees the easing of power from Syrian President Bashar Assad's grip through a political solution. The United States insists that Assad must go but Moscow has refused to back a provision that would call for Assad to step aside, insisting that outsiders cannot dictate a political solution for Syria.

German Chancellor Gerhard Shroeder with French President Jacques Chirac 10. Wide panning shot of conference room STORYLINE: European Union leaders on Friday held out the promise of more aid and cooperation for Ukraine if presidential elections on December 26 are considered free and fair. At a summit the 25 EU leaders said they want to tie Ukraine more closely to the West by working on a "neighbourhood" accord that will stop short of actual membership but offer better economic and political cooperation. The "neighbourhood" policy with Kiev would put the EU on a collision course with Russia, which is wary of what it sees as Western European meddling in a region that Moscow considers its sphere of influence. Ukraine has been in a political crisis since last month's presidential runoff between opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych was ruled unfair. Also on Friday, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was the guest of the 25 European Union leaders. The EU's support is critical for Annan's plan to revamp the United Nations' outdated 1945 structure and give more clout to the power brokers of today. Europeans are also anxious to discuss the UN role in monitoring elections next month in Iraq, where Annan has been reluctant to reinforce his scant team of experts. The European Union has been among Annan's staunchest supporters as he tries to ward off criticism among US conservatives over UN supervision of Iraq's oil-for-food programme, from which billions of dollars were skimmed by Saddam Hussein's regime. In Brussels, Annan is likely to lobby Europe's leaders for a plan to expand and reshape the Security Council and to set clearer guidelines for its members to use pre-emptive force. Annan commissioned the report last year after the months-long diplomat battle preceding the US-led war against Iraq, and unveiled the 95-page report two weeks ago. The 15-nation Security Council, with its exclusive five-nation club at its core, needs to be reviewed to reflect the shifting power centres since the end of World War Two when the United Nations was created. In other developments at the EU summit, European Union leaders offered Croatia a conditional April 2005 starting date for talks on entering the EU - but only if it hands over indicted war criminals to the UN war crimes tribunal. The 25 EU leaders were to offer the Balkan country the starting date for entry talks "if it is confirmed that Croatia fully cooperates with the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia," they said in a draft statement. Friday's decision on Croatia followed Thursday's historic decision by the EU to open entry talks with Turkey next year. European Union leaders agreed late on Thursday to open talks with the country on October 3, 2005, aimed at eventual EU membership. The European Council was meeting in Brussels on Friday for a second day of talks. The European Council is the name given to the regular meetings of heads of state and government of EU member states, and sometimes foreign ministers, and the President of the European Commission. It is convened in principle four times a year, twice during each six-month Presidency.

TAPE_NUMBER: EN9906 IN_TIME: 10:55:59 LENGTH: 2.16 SOURCES: APTN RESTRICTIONS: NO RESALE FILM/VIDEO CLIPS FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: xfa MIKHALKOV UNVEILS EPIC FILM WHILE DODGING POLITICS ===================================================== NIKITA MIKHALKOV, who wrote, directed and played the lead role of Serguei in Academy Award winning Burnt by the Sun, held a press conference in Moscow yesterday (8/2/99) to talk about his latest epic production, "The Barber of Siberia" which stars JULIA ORMOND, RICHARD HARRIS and Mikhalkov in the role of Tsar Alexander the third. The film will be given its glitzy Moscow premiere at the Kremlin concert hall on February 20th but in the meantime, Mikhalkov fielded questions about his political aspirations. The actor/director is Number Two in the "OUR HOME IS RUSSIA" party which was created by Prime Minister VICTOR CHERNOMYRDIN in April 1995. A centro- conservative bloc, Our Home promotes economic stability and above all, a continuation of the present course of BORIS YELTSIN'S government. "Our Home" has gathered some impressive characters to beef up its "party of power" profile including supermodel, CLAUDIA SCHIFFER and rapper, MC HAMMER.. The party is diametrically opposed to powerful communists and nationalist factions. When questioned about the possibility of his running for president in the near future, Mikhalkov answered that it was not appropriate to be talking about any possibilities regarding the presidency until President Yeltsin's term had run out in two year's time. Many Russians feel Mikhalkov has what it takes to be president, even though he remains guarded on the subject. Made at a cost of approximately $45 million US, "The Barber of Siberia" is one of the biggest productions ever mounted in Europe. Russian stars, OLEG MENSHIKOV and ALEXEY PETRENKO also appear in the film. Mikhalkov was born in Moscow in 1945 into a distinguished artistic family. His great grandfather, VASSILY SURNIKOV and his grandfather, PYOTR KONCHALOVSKY, were both acclaimed painters. His father, Sergei Mikhalkov, is a well known writer of children's literature (he also wrote the lyrics to the Soviet national anthem), while his mother, Natalkia, is a poet. Andrei (Mikhalkov-) Konchalovsky is his older brother, also a filmmaker ("Maria's Lovers," "Runaway Train," "Shy People"). Mikhalkov studied acting at the children's studio of the Stanislavsky Theatre and later at the Chuksin School of the Vakhtangov Theatre. While still a student, he appeared in Georgy Danelia's film "I Walk in Moscow" (1964) and his brother Andrei Konchalovsky's film, "A Nest of Gentry." (1969). He was soon on his way to becoming a star of the Soviet stage and cinema. While continuing to pursue his acting career, he then went to VGIK, the state film school in Moscow, where he studied directing under filmmaker Mikhail Romm, teacher to his brother and Andrei Tarkovsky. He directed his first short film in 1968, "I'm Coming Home," and another for his graduation, "A Quiet Day at the End of the War" in 1970. Mikhalkov had appeared in over twenty films, including his brother's "Uncle Vanya" (1972), before he co-wrote, directed and starred in his first feature, "At Home Among Strangers," in 1974, a kind of Soviet Western set during the 1920s civil war. Mikhalkov established an international reputation with his second feature, "A Slave of Love" (1976). Set in 1917, it followed the efforts of a film crew to make a silent melodrama in a resort town while the Revolution rages around them. The film was highly acclaimed upon its release in the U.S. His next film, "An Unfinished Piece for Player Piano" (1977) was adapted Chekhov's early play, "Platonov," and won the first prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival. In 1978, while starring in his brother's epic film "Siberiade," Mikhalkov made "Five Evenings," a love story about a couple separated by World War II, who meet again after fifteen years. Mikhalkov's next film, "Oblomov" (1980), is based on Ivan Goncharov classic novel about a lazy young nobleman who refuses to leave his bed. "Family Relations" (1981) is a comedy about a provincial woman in Moscow dealing with the tangled relationships of her relatives. "Without Witnesses" (1983) tracks a long night's conversation between a woman and her ex-husband when they are accidentally locked in a room. Incorporating several short stories by Chekhov, "Dark Eyes" (1987) stars Marcello Mastroianni as an old man who tells a story of a romance he had when he was younger, a woman he has never been able to forget. The film was highly praised, and Mastroianni received the Best Actor Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and an Academy Award nomination for his performance. "Close to Eden" (1992, aka "Urga", set in the little known world of the Mongols, who live on the border between Russia and China, was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film. Mikhalkov's "Anna" (1993) documents his daughter Anna as she grows from childhood to maturity. Mikhalkov has continued his acting career, appearing in such films as "The Call," "Song to Manchuk," "The Red Tent," "Flights of Fancy," "Station for Two," "Cruel Romance," and many of his own films, including "Burnt By The Sun," "At Home Among Strangers," "A Slave of Love," and "An Unfinished Piece." Mikhalkov has built up a reputation as an actor's director. He says that he improvises on the set, "in the way that Bergman does - - during long careful rehearsals, which are the only way to give the team, and particularly the actors, the freedom they need. I find it impossible to have a complete blueprint for a film. Partly because I'm not sure that what I intend to do will be right, and partly because a film is always a living thing and I need to confirm this constantly. I don't set out to 'make cinema;' it's rather that something happens between the cinema and me and the result is a film."
