MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) — A Russian-U.S. agreement on young journalists' exchange in 2012-2013 was signed at an international conference on mass media at the Itar-Tass news agency on Tuesday.
The document was inked by Chairman of the Union of Moscow Journalists Pavel Gusev for Russia and President of the International Center for Journalists Joyce Barnathan and Knight Foundation representative Eric Newton for the USA.
Dawn McCall, Coordinator for International Information Programs (IIP) expressed the hope that the treaty would become the first step towards dismantling the stereotypes existing between citizens of the two countries.
Russian journalists will be able to get a unique experience of working in American mass media, she added.
For his part, Pavel Gusev assured that "Russia will do everything to make the U.S. journalists, who come within the exchange framework, feel free."
The initiators of the idea explained that not only Moscow reporters and editors would be selected for participating in the project, but also regional journalists.
The U.S. Knight Foundation, dedicated to preserving and promoting quality journalism, will provide the administrative and financial support to the project.
