Taipei, June 22 (CNA) The Tokyo National Museum is replacing posters promoting an exhibition of artifacts from Taipei's National Palace Museum, following the Taipei museum notifying the Tokyo museum that the posters did not carry their full name, a spokesman for the National Palace Museum in Taipei said Sunday. The anonymous spokesman added, however, that the National Palace Museum will decide whether to go ahead with the exhibition only after its complaint was fully addressed. Museum officials decided late Saturday to postpone the exhibition, which is scheduled to open June 24 at the Tokyo National Museum, after the Tokyo museum failed to replace all posters before Saturday in which the word "National" was omitted from the Taipei museum's name. Calling the omission a breach of an agreement between the two museums, the Taipei museum postponed the exhibition. The dispute has prompted Chow Mei-ching, the wife of President Ma Ying-jeou, who is scheduled to preside at the opening of the exhibition on Tuesday, to postpone her Sunday trip to Tokyo.
