In today’s globalized world, all states are getting more closely interconnected on the economic basis. Therefore, communications between them are crucial in their impact on the economic development of any country. The shift of the world economic development center to the Asia-Pacific region gives an air of importance to mutually beneficial cooperation of NEA countries and Russia. But dynamic development of economic cooperation is impossible without trust between partners , which, in its turn, is determined by their ability to communicate regardless of the cultural barriers. In today’s communication space when dealing with another culture carrier, one must consider all factors and follow the rules and norms of behavior. However, the process of self-identification makes some nations aspire for cultural self-assertion, which manifests itself both as a passive rejection of the values of other cultures and as an active opposition of their manifestation . A striking example of such cross-cultural conflict between NEA countries was the visit of Yasukuni war shrine by Japanese Prime Minister Abe, December 26, 2013. According to Japanese legend, it rests the souls of Japanese military killed in the fighting. The shrine keeps more than 2.4 million names of all Japanese that died in the fields of military battles from the middle of the XIX century. Among them there are the names of those who were found guilty of war crimes by a Tokyo military tribunal in 1945. So, a 30-minute visit to a controversial shrine ignited a predictable firestorm of criticism and condemnation from China South Korea. These countries suffered under Japan’s military aggression in World War II. The Chinese foreign ministry issued a statement that Beijing expresses strongest anger for this heavily offending act. To honor the shrine is to embellish and falsely beautify Japan’s military incursion and colonization. South Korean Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism said that he deplores and expresses indignation. He also urged Japan to stop embellishing its invasion. Though Abe explained he only wanted to pray for the souls of the war dead, not honor war criminals, trampling on the neighbors’ sensitivities about their shared past will exacerbate tensions in Northeast Asia.
