Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on the Commemorative Activities to be Held by the Chinese Government Celebrating the Victory of the War Against Japanese Aggression

2014/08/15

Q: Today is August 15, a day that marks Japan's second world war defeat. The Japanese government held its annual commemoration. What kind of activities will the Chinese government hold on September 3, China's anti-Japanese war victory day?

A: To remind us of the strenuous efforts and struggle the Chinese people have made in the war against Japanese aggression, and to pay tribute to the martyrs and all the people who sacrificed their lives for the victory, as well as to demonstrate the firm resolve of the Chinese people to oppose aggression and uphold peace, last February, the National People's Congress designated September 3 as victory day of the Chinese people's war of resistance against Japanese aggression", and December 13 as national memorial day to commemorate those killed by Japanese aggressors during the Nanjing Massacre in the 1930s. The 69th anniversary marking the victory of the Chinese people's war of resistance against Japanese aggression falls on this September 3. Up to my knowledge, the Chinese government will hold commemorative activities on that day, and relevant work is in smooth preparations.
